Rotterdam - Dutch yacht builder Oceanco has acquired the Heerema Zwijndrecht shipyard in the Netherlands. It is “part of the company’s long-term initiative for growth, expansion, and consolidation of its construction activities,” writes Oceanco in a press release.
The enhanced space will allow for the maintenance, refit and lifetime extension activities of the Oceanco fleet as well as provide the ability to do outside refit work
The acquisition fits into “Oceanco’s greater forward-thinking strategy, to create an infrastructure where numerous companies servicing the superyacht industry can come together. The idea is for the premises to be utilised as a co-maker’s superyacht brain park where diverse companies will have their offices and workshops in one area and work side by side with the ability to share knowledge and expertise.”
