De Ruiter

Jachtwerf De Ruiter, originally located in NL-Hardinxveld-Giessendam, is a well-known name in the Dutch yacht building industry. Founded in 1965, the yard quickly built a solid reputation for delivering high-quality and bespoke yachts. With craftsmanship and an eye for detail, De Ruiter created unique ships that were appreciated all over the world.

In 1979 the shipyard decided to move to NL-'s-Hertogenbosch, where they continued their activities. This move gave De Ruiter the opportunity to further expand their facilities and expertise. They worked on different types of yachts, including motor yachts and motor sailers, all of which were characterized by their excellent quality and luxurious finish.

An interesting aspect of De Ruiter's history is the branch in NL-Hoogeveen, which closed in 1980 due to health reasons of Mr. Gijs de Ruiter. This facility served as an additional location for the yard, enabling them to increase their production capacity.

In 1981 another important event in the history of the yard took place. Shipyard De Ruiter was taken over by Moonen Yachts. Moonen was a perfect match for De Ruiter because of their shared passion for craftsmanship and high-quality yacht building. The company has been further expanded under the name Moonen Yachts and they are still an important shipbuilder for the region and the Netherlands.

Although the yard as such no longer exists, the name shipyard De Ruiter remains synonymous with quality and craftsmanship in Dutch yacht building. De Ruiter's legacy lives on in the continued success of Moonen Yachts, which continues to strive for the highest standard of luxury yacht building.
