Dutch Superyacht System Integrator's Healthy Outlook

Press Release
Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Alewijnse Marine Systems, headquartered in The Netherlands, has multiple superyacht electrical system orders for 2013.

The company closed 2012 with a strong order book that demonstrates the underlying strength of the top yards in the superyacht industry.

As a system integrator Alewijnse works with yards around the world, supplying specialist electrical engineering services up to and including the installation and integration of entire electrical systems for the largest megayachts. The business flows that Alewijnse is currently experiencing bears out the general perception that the long-standing, high quality yards continue to win orders, and that orders for new yachts elsewhere are slowly increasing.

Evidence for this comes from the fact that Alewijnse is currently working on seven superyachts at the engineering (design) stage and on a further seven superyacht projects in build across four yards in the Netherlands and Turkey. Refit work also continues to be strong. Recent new launches include superyachts like MY Nirvana and two yachts by Amels, plus the distinctive 36 m explorer yacht Lola by Peer Gynt Yachts.

“We have been fortunate to have received a strong inflow of orders over 2012", Kees van Doorn, Business Development Manager Yachts, commented. This reflects a return to the superyacht market of mostly experienced owners who were waiting for greater stability in the global economy before placing their orders for new yachts. The majority of the yachts on which we are working are in the 60 to 110 m range, making them very significant projects.”

The demand that Alewijnse is experiencing is also reflected in the continuing expansion of its network of subsidiaries, with Alewijnse Turkey and Alewijnse Qatar the latest additions to the Group.
