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.
