More than 14 percent of the worlds super yachts are build in the Netherlands
Superyachts of Dutch manufactures are gaining in popularity. In 2016, more than one in nine superyachts was made in the Netherlands, compared with just over 14 percent last year.
In view of the value of the vessels, the Netherlands accounted for 30 percent of the total market last year, according to trade association HISWA Holland Yachting Group on Wednesday.
The 23 new orders that were dragged in last year, according to the organization, point to a positive trend.
Worldwide, 149 superyachts of more than 30 meters long were built. Together they generated 4.1 billion euros. The 21 superyachts of Dutch shipbuilders raised a record amount of 1.2 billion euros.
The average price for a Dutch boat was 57 million euros. That amounts to an increase of 10 percent on an annual basis.
