Dick Gilles is the enterprising and innovative builder of yachts behind Dick Gilles Jachtbouw, although ‘maritime innovator’ is actually a more fitting name for all the activities at the yard in Middenmeer.
It is here that multi-specialists put their heart and soul into developing, and working with, the latest shipbuilding and propulsion technologies. The starting points here are ‘circular’ and ‘sustainable’, with each order carefully tailored to what is really necessary. For 25 years, this philosophy of delivering state-of-the-art craftsmanship has formed the very foundations of Dick Gilles Jachtbouw.
We provide the very best that human hands can make, incorporating the latest knowledge and technology for, among others, Plastic Whale, Tideman, and New Electric Marine. We have also pooled all our experience in a unique seafaring houseboat, the POWERHOUSE boat. This is the pinnacle of innovation in the field of ecological construction, comfortable living, and fantastic sailing characteristics. And it won’t break the bank either!
Dick Gilles and his team are more or less synonymous for innovation on water. They develop and build sustainable yachts and sailing vessels, indestructible work boats and other craft, with electric or hybrid power trains. From design to repairs and renovations, in every conceivable material, and for a wide range of uses, including as homes, for work, or just sailing.
“In my company, skill and modern sustainable technologies have gone hand in hand for as long as I can remember”
