OUR STORY

BUILT FOR
THE EXCEPTIONAL

During his career as being a key-supplier within the superyacht industry for the most luxurious builders in the Netherlands and Germany Leon Bekkers gained a lot of experience in boatbuilding. The most exciting about working on these projects is that on top of on-time delivery and being liable the most important is to deliver the highest possible quality and nothing less. Every superyacht project is a piece of art.

Built for very special owners that want to be exclusive, outstanding and want to enjoy their time on the water with family and friends. This kind of exclusivity and drive for delivering the highest quality is only possible if you fully focus on a small amount of projects and give your heart and soul and listen to the clients wishes. Within the range of yachts 40 feet up to 60 feet this philosophy almost doesn’t exist. Bekkers yachts wants to do things different. No mass production,

no fiberglass hull, no restrictions. We want to introduce the exclusiveness, aim for perfection, clients wishes and non-concessions from the superyacht industry within the aluminum dayboat & weekender market. For those who not only loves yachts and water but also the art and craftsmanship of building a yacht and creating something special and be different every time you enter a port. That’s why we say a Bekkers Yacht is ‘’Built for the exceptional’’.

OUR SUPERYACHT TEAM

DUTCH CRAFTMANSHIP

We can only achieve our goals by delivering the best yachts in its range and working with a team that covers all disciplines of building a smaller superyacht. With superyacht award winning designer René van der Velden we launched our first model the Azur 45. It offers the most spacious accommodation of it’s class, a customizable deck lay-out and it’s contemporary design and curves.

Naval architecture has been done by Menno van Dijk’s Studio Delta team who were the key players in designing a strong, comfortable and fast aluminum hull and construction design. While Navyk did the engineering of the aluminum hull. Another key player in our team is former director of the famous superyacht builder Moonen Yachts Emile Bilterijst. His decades of experience in both fast displacement yachts as superyachts makes him the best advisor in coordinating our projects together with Aurelio Patty to maintain our focus on creating something special.

“It was a great challenge to design a yacht that is distinctive in appearance as well as functionality in this full-market”
