The De Vries Group is dedicated to custom-built superyachts of the highest calibre. This family business was awarded the designation ‘Koninklijk’ (Royal) at the time of its centenary in 2006, a title that is exclusively bestowed on companies that have distinguished themselves in terms of quality and craftsmanship.
Headed by the family board, the group comprises six operating companies: Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw, De Vries Scheepsbouw Makkum, Scheepswerf Slob, Akerboom Yacht Equipment, De Klerk Binnenbouw and STI Engineering
Each plays a specialised role in the overall yacht building process while continually investing in craftsmanship, safety and the very latest technologies. All staff members share a passion for their work, a strong belief in their own and each other’s abilities, and the drive to be the very best at what they do. Taking full responsibility for their own efforts, De Vries Group personnel also have great pride and enjoyment in their work.
