Hartman enters yacht building arena

ADVERTISEMENT

Hartman Marine Group, a commercial shipbuilding and maritime transport company that can trace its roots back to 1775, is now in the business of building megayachts.

The Holland-based company has launched Hartman Yachts, a megayacht division offering two distinct semi-custom  ranges — the classic Livingstone and the Amundsen expedition yacht, both available in lengths from 79 feet (24m) to 138 feet (42m).  

The Livingstone line combines the appearance of a luxury yacht from the first half of the 20th century with the high-tech finishing and modern technology of a 21st-century yacht. The name of the series is a homage to the Scottish explorer Dr. David Livingstone, who sailed one of the earliest steel boats ever built, the steam launch Ma Robert. The first of Hartman’s Livingston line has been delivered.

The Amundsen line is named after the Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen, who was the first person to reach both the North and South Poles. The style is inspired by warships of the past, and all Amundsen yachts are equipped with a Polar Class hull to ensure their  capacity to sail anywhere in the world.

“Values and standards that have stood the test of time are at the core of our company and underpin all our activities,” Hartman Marine’s Johan Hartman, seventh-generation skipper-owner, stated in a company news release.
