Our story

A shipbuilding heritage stretching back centuries

Many of us at Damen Yachting come from a long line of shipbuilders in the south of the Netherlands – for centuries the heart of Dutch shipbuilding. Our Vlissingen City yard is the former Royal Schelde yard, acquired by Damen in 2000. We are proud to continue the tradition of local shipbuilding expertise.

Damen Yachting portfolio

In 2005 we introduced the Amels Limited Editions range. Alongside Amels yachts, our parent company Damen later introduced its own innovative new yachting products including Yacht Support in 2008 and SeaXplorer luxury expedition yachts in 2015. In 2019, the new Damen Yachting division brought together the entire yachting portfolio.
