Oceanco acquires refit yard

ADVERTISEMENT

Oceanco, a custom yacht builder based in the Netherlands, has acquired the Heerema Zwijndrecht premises, which encompass 28 acres of construction facilities, administration offices and conference rooms, outfit facilities, a piping shop, paint facilities and sandblasting facilities.

The acquisition is intended to create a hub where different companies that service the superyacht industry will have offices and workshops in one area, enabling them to come together on projects and share resources and expertise, according to a press release from Oceanco. Plans also include the creation of a campus for technical training and education across different superyacht-related disciplines.

Located in the Drechtsteden region of the Netherlands, the construction facilities are approximately 10km down-river from Oceanco’s outfitting facilities. According to the company, the first phase of construction works for new builds will take place at these facilities. The enhanced space will allow for the maintenance, refit and lifetime extension activities of the Oceanco fleet, as well as provide the ability to do outside refit work.
