The independent, discrete and highly professional nature of the organisation is valued by many companies that seek investment opportunities in the center of the Dutch Maritime Delta.

We are Drecht Cities

A tradition of craftsmanship spanning more than six centuries. A close-knit community built on loyalty, trust and hard work. And a culture based on pragmatism and co-operation. We are the Drecht Cities: a world-class cluster of maritime masters in the heart of the Dutch delta, on the edge of the North Sea. What we build, helps the world to prosper, grow and stay safe for generations to come.

Sliedrecht is an ambitious municipality with an outstanding business climate, where Danser Group has really felt at home for more than 30 years.

Golden year for Dutch superyacht sector

Having seen its market value share of global superyacht deliveries rise to 30 percent in 2017, the year 2018 saw further proof of the strength of the Dutch superyacht industry. Delivering over 1.5 billion euros worth of 30-metre-plus yachts to owners around the world, the specialist yards in the Netherlands also have a further 60 superyachts at various stages of construction. This ongoing expansion is showcased by the opening of the new state-of-the-art facility in Amsterdam by Feadship. As the HISWA Holland Yachting Group celebrates its 50th anniversary, 2019 is set to be a golden year for the Dutch industry.
