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.
Read the test report here: Test Compromis 777, 888 and 999
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.
We 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.”
at the event called ‘Flevo Watersport Experience Lelystad'.
On 30 April and 1st of May C-Yacht will have two open days, as participant at the event called ‘Flevo Watersport Experience Lelystad’. Location is our Flevo Marina.
During this ‘Watersport Experience Lelystad’ C-Yacht will be open. And you’ll be very welcome to enjoy some snacks and drinks with us and have a look at our beautiful ships. You’d like to bring your family with you? Good idea! We also have something for our young sailors. In other words, reason enough to come over and visit us…. Our professional team will be happy to let you test one of our model ships or a pre-owned one, completely non-binding.
Our newest creation, the 1250i, is currently being tested by various nautical media. Europe’s biggest boating magazine YACHT chose a different approach: An offshore cruise …with lots of wind. And you bet she passed with flying colours!
Out at the North Sea, with waves 3 metres high we had 2 ships, 2 editors, 2 photographers, 12.6 measured knots and a 1250i which felt and performed just fine. Shortly more details about the exact results. For now enjoy some impressive pictures taken out there…
