I am in the middle of a build with Hakvoort, and having toured every other major yard in Holland, I have to say that Hakvoort falls into the top five builders in the world in terms of quality, etc... They are a true joy to work with, and while they do not have much in the way of publicity, their work speaks for itself. I cannot say enough about them. It is truly a family-run operation, and they will not sacrifice quality for cost-saving measures... I would have to rank them as #3 just behind Royal Huisman, and Feadship De Vries... The only thing I would say, is that they should publicize themselves more. They are in the process of extended their slipway to enable the construction of even larger vessels as the yard.
