In 1999, KM Yachtbuilders acquired a yard with more than 30 years experience in building aluminum yachts. This valuable experience in combination with the fresh broom of new owner Eeuwe Kooi makes KM Yachtbuilders a young and innovative company. KM Yachtbuilders is specialised in building completely finished aluminum sailing yachts. You may well know them under the name Bestevaer, Stadtship or Axonite. We often work together with designers on a ‘one-off’ yacht, such as the German Frers 88ft ‘Tulip’.
We supply aluminum hulls and superstructures for motor and sailing yachts of other yards, including Royal Huisman Shipyard and De Vries Feadship. Private individuals are also more than welcome for the construction of a hull or a hull+.
The quality requirements in this market segment are very high. Our hull builders, carpenters and fitters have a proven track record of exceeding those requirements. Our modern yard in Makkum is on lake IJsselmeer. You can reach us by water. Please come and visit our yard.
