Ideally located in Makkum

Makkum is also called the Silicon Valley of the yacht building industry, with many shipyards located in this little village in the north of the Netherlands. With just a 1.5-hour drive from Schiphol Airport, it is ideally located for international sailors to schedule a viewing or to visit their yacht. Trial sails can easily be made at the Ijsselmeer or even further; sailing further up north at the Waddensea.

Quality yachts since 1975

With the construction of wooden regatta dinghies like ‘Valken’ and ‘Regenbogen,’ Hutting Yachts was founded in 1975 by Tjerk Hutting. As he fully optimized the designs, many of his yachts won races, including the national championships, resulting in many new orders. He further developed his expertise, and ten years later, he launched the first Hutting 40, designed by Koopmans Senior. Based on this success, he developed a range between 40 – 56ft, resulting in the worldwide-known shipyard as it is today.

Beyond business, Hutting Yachts has evolved into a family company, with Tjerk, his wife, daughter, and two youngest sons now integral parts of the company. Together with the skilled team of craftsmen, we achieve success by combining our passion for crafting the finest yachts. As Tjerk always emphasizes, “Do what you love, and success will follow.”
