We realize better ships in less time because of our engineering


Bart Bouwhuis and Marnix Hoekstra - Directors of Vripack


Bart & Marnix; "We don't just design yachts..."

“As a sparkling yacht design, naval architecture and engineering studio, we are involved in the entire building process of great innovative yachts that are professionally developed for private customers and shipyards worldwide.

Our passionate team is convinced that a good design is more than meets the eye. It is also, and above all, a question of how well the design works and feels at sea. We therefore believe in a Holistic approach and that is what makes us unique.

Since 1961 we've created over 7300 designs and are known for our high quality no-nonsense-go-anywhere ships that roam the Seven Seas.

A good design shouldn’t meet all requirements. It should surpass them, creating a boat that is able to go beyond dreams. Our Holistic design approach is crucial with regard to working on the cutting edge of design and technology."


Fact #1

In 1961 a man from Amsterdam just started designing boats. More than 56 years later, after 7300+ projects the ingenious Vripack Studio still is the true Holistic Naval Architect.


Holistic – from Holism, Greek ὅλος holos "all, whole, entire"

The idea that an object and its properties should be viewed as a whole, not as a collection of its individual parts.

It is our believe that ships function as wholes and that their functioning can only be truly great when designing all her separate component parts by one team.
