Heesen Yachts has announced the official inauguration of its newly expanded facility in Winterswijk – home to the yard’s interior workshop.
The ceremony was attended by the mayor of Winterswijk, Joris Bengevoord, alongside the Chairman of Heesen’s Supervisory Board and its other directors.
“We look forward to continuing the tradition of building precious interiors for the most innovative Heesen yachts to the highest Dutch quality standards,” commented Henry Schreur, Managing Director of Heesen Interiors. “Exceptional artisanal craftsmanship sits at the heart of yacht building, and the expansion of our Winterswijk facilities reinforces not only the strength of the work being undertaken in-house at Heesen, but also the lengths that we go to in order to deliver unrivalled customer satisfaction.”
The expansion of the facility consists of 2,240 square metres of new production space, which brings the total production area to 8,100 square metres. The office space has also increased by 332 square metres.

According to a source from Heesen, the expansion is a response to increased demand from owners for yachts of greater size and volume. Heesen is also hiring 30 new workshop employees, bringing the total workforce at the Winterswijk facilities to 130.
Heesen is one of a select group of shipbuilders to have an entire in-house department of interior specialists to enable the yard to maintain a consistent quality and level of service.
