Acico Yachts, a relatively new player in the pantheon of Dutch yacht builders, has launched both power and sailing superyachts, and also offers semi-custom luxury yachts.
History of Acico Yachts
The shipyard finds its roots in the former Dutch Yacht Builders in Enkhuisen, a town rich in The Netherlands’ centuries-old shipbuilding tradition. Dutch Yacht Builders, which was founded in 1995, was building the 49-metre Motor Yacht Nassima for a Middle Eastern owner in 2009 when it ran into financial difficulties. Nassima’s owner purchased the yard and formed Acico Yachts, not only to complete the build project, but also to launch a new custom and semi-custom yacht-building operation. Swiss Naval Architect Christian Bolinger was named managing director.
