Pontoon float-on, roll-off yacht service

In addition to the 4 Vlissingen drydocks, make use of our covered yacht building facilities with Damen Yachting’s dedicated 85-metre semi-submersible pontoon for lifting and launches. The pontoon handles yachts up to 80 metres in length, 16 metres beam, 3,000 tonnes, and 5 metres draught.

Your project

Our float-on, roll-off (Flo-Ro) operations make hauling out your yacht a safe, controlled and precise process without using drydock facilities. Together with our partner Mammoet, we complete around 10 Flo-Ro and Ro-Flo operations a year.
