With over 40 years of experience in the construction of professional vessels, Euroship Services in Heerenwaarde has a wealth of nautical knowledge in house. This is undoubtedly experience from which yachters can and should benefit, which is why Euroship introduced classic professional vessels for leisure cruising some two decades ago; a move that turned out to be a great success. A unique characteristic of the yard’s approach is that clients can decide themselves to what extent they wish to outsource the building process. From construction package to hull, from technically ready-to-sail to fully equipped yacht; anything is possible at Euroship Services.
Build your own boat
Euroship Services is a family business that has been owned and run by the Cornelissen family since its inception. The yard delivers each vessel entirely in accordance with its clients’ wishes. This is possible because the whole process takes place under one roof. As the design is realised in house, any wishes and demands can be included in the design stage, even when the client orders a construction package or shell construction. In these cases, the computer generates a construction package that is then meticulously produced, serving as the perfect basis for self-builders and yards. For sailors who prefer to spend their time on the water instead of in the shed, the yard produces technically ready-to-sail and even fully furnished ready-to-sail yachts.hts.
The ‘Luxe Motor’ was a pioneering model introduced by the yard in 2000. Since the delivery of the first Luxe Motor 1800, the yard has realised over 150 boats in this series, as construction package, shell construction or ready-to-sail yachts. The vessels are available in lengths from 13.5 to 30 metres. The Luxe Motor 1500 is the most popular, as it offers optimal living space on board a licence-exempt yacht. Developments have continued since then, and the model now has a range of successors.
Another design by Euroship Services is the ‘Meander’, an all-round yacht for the European inland and coastal waters that is available in a variety of sizes. The Meander is as sturdy and practical as the Luxe Motor, but offers more inside space thanks to its smarter underwater section. One of the latest designs and vessels launched by the yard is the Meander 1700: with its exceptional indoor space, it is the perfect companion for long trips as well as permanent occupation. Unique features include the integrated hydraulic crane and garage, which enables owners to bring their motorcycle, tender or even small car on board.
Another popular model is the spacious ‘Deksalon 2000’, ideal for those looking for a double deck yacht. With its maximum clearance of 3.45 metres it is suitable for sailing the French waters, while the aft deck, large saloon & galley and second living below deck make it perfect for long or even permanent stays on board.
