    The Holland Jachtbouw 152 foot Windrose won the overall 2008 St. Barths Bucket. The Windrose is a phenomenal competitor, participating in several prestigeous races all over the world. However, the winning St. Barths Bucket is a first for the yacht and the team.

    This is what Paul Dielemans,the managing director of Holland Jactbouw had to say, "It was a virtual photo finish but we took line honours just five seconds ahead of Ranger. Having come second on day two and fith in the round the island race, this was sufficient for us to be named the overall winner."

    The crew who sailed the Windrose in the bucket, was new and only had one day prior to the races to practice and become accustomed her. The schooner-type rig was quite different for them but they sailed to maximum performance.

    Where can we take you?

    This particular shipyard has gone through some sort of a re-branding. In effect, the Holland Jachtbouw have created a new slogan as well as a new name for themselves.

    Of course they still have the same name but have 'initialized' the name. Now they are known as 'HJB' and with this also comes a slogan that runs like this...'where can we take you?' A new name, a new slogan, and a new logo goes well with the new indoor facilities completed.

    We know that the new sailyacht Athos will be the first yacht to be completed in the new sprawling 69 M X 20M (LXW) indoor building hall. Managing Director of the shipyard, Paul Dielemans also gave insight into plans of refashioning the existing smaller building hall for the arrival of their 42M motoryacht project.

    A new name and slogan for a new journey and a sprawling new indoor facilty housing the world's largest privately owned two-masted schooner -for now- and remodernization of the smaller indoor facility. A step in the right direction I would say.

    HJB says...'Where can we take you?'

    Build Update: 42.28-meter "CII"

    In February 2009, the aluminum superstructure for the 42-meter "CII" arrived at the Holland Jachtbouw yard. Recently, that new structure was fitted to the hull.

    "Measuring 19-meters long by 7.60-meters wide, and with a height of 4-meters, this 6.2 tonne construction took almost 2 months to build." This near 500 tonne yacht will be launched at the end of 2009.

    Vredeweg 32,

    The 42-meter "CII"/"Casseopia II" apparently has a different name since launching at HJB. The name I see now is "Calliope".

    "After months of speculation, the owners of the recently completed 42-metre motoryacht have unveiled her name at a special ceremony. The yacht, which until now had carried the project name "CII", was christened "Calliope" as the owners and the HJB workforce celebrated the completion of this major build.

    Calliope is the second semi-displacement motoryacht commissioned by the owners at Holland Jachtbouw. The first was the 32-metre flybridge cruiser Cassiopeia, launched to considerable acclaim in 2004. Both yachts are named after goddesses, with Calliope being the muse of music and epic poetry.

    Although Calliope was first launched into the water in May, this naming ceremony was more spectacular as it showed the yacht in all her glory. Timelessly stylish both inside and out, Calliope has been built and finished to a remarkable standard of quality. With her Bill Langan design, Rhoades Young interior and major input from an experienced owner, this fully customised powerboat impresses in every way."

    Yesterday, July 19, 2010, the hull of Project "Rainbow" arrived on the deck of a barge at the facilities of Holland Jachtbouw. She was transported from Bloemsma Aluminbouw where her hull was fabricated. HJB will now complete the rest of the works and launch her in early 2012.

    "Calliope's" interior of what appears to be her saloon. Very nice, inviting and relaxing.

    Chris Gongriep Passes Away

    Holland Jachtbouw recently released some bad news : “We are grateful for how Chris developed the yard and how he made it possible for others to share their passion for building yachts, meanwhile stimulating the possibility for yacht owners to create their own dream and to be able to show their passion and love for the sea. His passing away is a great loss for Holland Jachtbouw, his inspiration and hospitality will be missed throughout the industry and the international sailing scenes. We remember his smile, his passion and his creativity for how to make dreams come true.” Holland Jachtbouw will host a memorial ceremony 17th December at the yard’s facilities in Zaandam, followed by a private funeral. We offer our deepest condolences for the loss of a husband and father to Gongriep’s family.
