In 2017 we had put into operation our first new production hall. A few weeks ago, our second new hall was commissioned. Therewith, in terms of space we scaled up our production capacities to 5000 m² (53820 ft²). Quoting Jan Muller, our CEO at Zaadnoordijk Yachtbuilders: “We notice a growing demand for yachts built in The Netherlands. Customers look for safety aboard and for a certain flexibility. We produce our ships here at Heerenveen: Dutch quality and craftsmanship is what you get.”

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.”
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.
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.
