Cheers to them

They decided to celebrate in style and sent an open invitation to all Koopmans yacht owners. They had only one limitation and that was the size of the harbour. It could only take 100 boats.99 yachts turned up, and with a few Koopmans yachts already belonging to the harbour Jachthaven Lelystadhaven, they had over 100 Koopman designed yachts present.
That’s very impressive considering that they mostly design one of boats.


How!!! this is pretty impressive and shows the huge respect they deserve by the ones that sails their boats.

They are a bit heavy for my personal taste but I love many of their designs:

They have also a very informative site about yacht design:
