September 21, 2022 5:00 pm

The Denison team has embarked on yet another shipyard tour last week, this time returning to the Netherlands for a five-day trip visiting some of the biggest names in superyachts. Among the builders were Feadship and Mulder, both with a long history of boat-building, with a focus on their craftsmanship. A team of 15 Denison employees toured the shipyards in Amsterdam and its surrounding areas, encountering impressive yacht builds they had yet to see.

President Bob Denison has always felt strongly about these annual shipyard tours, which provide a lot of value to the Denison team, aside from quality time. “Shipyard tours are great opportunities to not only gain insights from the world’s best builders, but also a time for team-building and connecting with our industry in a unique way,” he shared.

The team consisted of superyacht brokers Aaron Antonson, Drew Offerdahl, Erik Mayol, Gary Hardcastle, Juno Prudhomm, Mike Burke, Pierre Badin, Riccardo Solci, Russ Schafer, Sidney Ambroise, and Thom Conboy, who traveled alongside Bob, the company’s superyacht director, Ben Farnborough, and Europe director, Jeremy Roche. Denison videographer Alexander Howell joined the team to capture the best moments.

Ben has mentioned in the past the numerous benefits of shipyard tours. Beyond the obvious educational value, he also has noted the ability to experience what a client may experience if they were to purchase a new yacht and potentially visit the shipyard. The Denison team is passionate about being continually in the know when it comes to advancements in the yacht industry, in addition to ensuring the best experience for their clients.

A total of 12 shipyards were visited on this extensive tour, including Mulder, Feadship, ICON, Wajer, Vanquish, Lekker, Moonen, Heesen, Amels, Oceano, Van Der Valk, and Zeelander.
