The city of Amsterdam has been renowned for its shipbuilding industry since the fourteenth century, specifically for the high level of craftsmanship and superior quality standards involved. This longstanding tradition is now being continued, as Port of Amsterdam is inviting yacht manufacturers specialising in the construction and refitting of superyachts to relocate to the Amsterdam port area.
