The art of building hulls for mega yachts began in the 19th century with vessels for horticulturists in and around Amsterdam. Five generations and just as many shipyards later, Gouwerok Shipyard was founded in Aalsmeer. The company has two modern sheds with a total surface area of 2850m2 that are perfectly equipped for the construction of mega yachts. The sheds are situated on the Ringvaart (ring canal), which forms part of the main waterway between Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
Esther Gouwerok and her partner Michel Vermeulen have owned the family business, where experts build aluminium hulls for mega yachts, since 2001. In order to constantly meet changing client requirements, the expertise at Gouwerok is developing all the time. Thanks to the collaboration with strategic partners and the expansion of delivery capacity, in the years to come increasingly larger, unique and more advanced aluminium hulls for mega yachts will continue to be produced by this shipyard.
