The latest news from the brand C-Yacht

The team of C-Yacht and Zaadnoordijk Yachtbuilders are deeply shocked and saddened by the sudden news of the death of Frans Maas.

Since 1976, Frans Maas had been a regular yacht designer at C-Yacht and Zaadnoordijk where he developed a variety of models. He is the mastermind behind the current C-Yacht series and developed, among other, the C-Yachts12.50 and 11.00.

“We know Frans Maas not only as an excellent yacht designer”, says CEO Jan Muller. “We also know him as a passionate and highly skilled sailor”. Our entire team is deeply saddened by this huge and tragic loss. And our thoughts are with his family and friends. We wish them strength in this difficult time.”

Old love does not rust

Europe’s biggest sailing magazine, YACHT just tested our Compromis 777, 888 and 999

In 2001 we changed our company name from Compromis to C-Yacht. Much has changed since then. But luckily, some things stayed exactly the same: No mass production at assembly-lines but true craftsmanship instead. We still use only the best materials, too. And we kept our love for the craft and attention to details just as strong as they were back then.

Europe’s biggest sailing magazine, YACHT just tested our Compromis 777, 888 and 999. And what a special test! Alexander Worms sailed the trio and experienced the high quality of those ships.


C-Yacht extends her production capacity

First pile of the new building is planted in the ground.

Seen the growing demand for bigger yacht models, Zaadnoordijk Yachtbuilders’ current site at Heerenveen has become too small for production. Reason why we started to construct a top modern new building. Our shipyard thus prepares for the construction of bigger yachts – and for future growth.

International interest for C-Yacht

Last month our shipyard got some special visits, too: Journalists from four important water sports magazines came to see and test our C-Yacht 1250i.

PALSTEK-04-2016We are delighted to share: None other than Sven Rutter, chief test sailor of the renowned German yachting magazine Palstek, came by today to test our 1250i. And he was impressed! Now we can’t wait to see the new edition of the magazine Palstek. In the meantime, we enjoy the photos!

Palstek: “Dass Flaggschiff von C-Yacht vermag neben der soliden Bauweise vor allem in puncto Komfort durchaus Maßstäbe zu setzen. Viele schöne Detaillösungen zeugen von der großen Erfahrung der Werft – die niederländischen Bootsbauer wissen, was sich Eigner wünschen. Die Mittelcockpityacht wartet zudem mit ordentlichen Segelleistungen, einem frischen Interieur-Design und einem beeindruckenden Ausstattungsumfang auf. Ein Testbericht von Sven M. Rutter.”
