Bloemsma & Van Breemen

Located in a newly expanded shipyard in Makkum, the Netherlands, Bloemsma Van Breeman builds custom luxury sailing yachts, motor yachts and superyachts in collaboration with noted yacht designers.


The shipyard began under the name Jachtwerf Bloemsma in 1974, building steel and aluminium hulls and superstructures for other yacht builders. In 1997, Nico Van Breemen took over management of the shipyard, renaming it Bloemsma Van Breemen and focussing on custom luxury yacht construction. It has remained a family-run company ever since. Since 2000, improvements have been made to the shipyard, adding heated floors and expanding its construction capacity to handle yachts up to 65 metres.

Bloemsma Van Breemen has built a wide variety of luxury yachts ranging from an 18 to 48 metres.

Notable Yachts

In 2005, the shipyard delivered its largest superyacht to date, the 48-metre oceangoing Motor Yacht Flying Eagle. Built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, Flying Eagle features naval architecture by Vripack and both exterior and interior styling by Reymond Langton Design.

Bloemsma Van Breemen launched Valquest, a 40.75-metre sailing superyacht, in 2009. The aluminium sloop was designed by Dubois Naval Architects, who gave her sleek, contemporary lines and a classic interior.


The shipyard’s goal is to build custom luxury yachts and superyachts according to the finest Dutch yacht-building traditions.
