Super van Craft
Klaassen Jachtbouw from Voorschoten is a Dutch yacht builder who focuses on the construction of classic, steel yachts. The company has a rich history that goes back to 1933, when the brothers Jan and Leen Klaassen started building wooden boats. In 1947 they built their first steel yacht and from that moment the company focused entirely on the construction of steel ships.
In the 1950s and 60s of the last century, Klaassen hunting built name as builder of the famous Super van Craft Yachten. These luxury, classic yachts were built in different lengths and were popular with rich customers at home and abroad. The Super van Craft Yachten were known for their beautiful lines, high quality woodwork and luxury interiors.
The highlight of the Super van Craft series was the Super van Craft 11.60, which was introduced in the 1960s. This was a very luxurious yacht that was equipped with all modern conveniences, such as a central heating, a fridge and a television. The Super van Craft 11.60 was a great success and many were built.
In the 80s and 90s of the last century, the market for yachts changed and the demand for these steel yachts decreased. Klaassen Jachtbouw played in this by focusing on the construction of larger and more luxurious motor yachts such as the Super van Craft 13.80, the Super van Craft 14.80 and the Super van Craft 17.50. However, the company always remained faithful to his roots and always continued to build yachts in the same style.
Although the Super van Craft yachts are no longer built, they are still loved by lovers of classical yachts. Many of these ships are still being maintained and cherished by their owners. The Super van Craft Yachten are a lasting memory of the rich history of Klaassen Jachtbouw.
