Behind the sailing brand C-Yacht is the shipyard Zaadnoordijk Yachtbuilders, which received the name of its founder. In 1947, Rinus Zaadnoordijk opened a small marina in Eitgest. With the support of the family, he built and repaired boats. At first, Zaadnoordijk built small sailing and fishing boats from wood. One of the first in the district, he began to use fiberglass. Demand was great enough, he had to look for new areas for production. In 1968, such a place was found in Heerenveen near the large and deep canal. So the shipyard was founded, the power of which allowed to establish mass production. Since then, the company has produced more than 7,000 vessels. All these years, the main goal of Zaadnoordijk has been the safety and high quality of boats.
The current owner of the shipyard, Jan Muller, has remained committed to these principles. Each ship is built using the knowledge of experienced sailors.
All customer wishes are realized, and this requires a lot of attention to detail.
C-Yacht is part of the brands of the shipyard Zaadnoordijk Yachtbuilders, which also produces yachts under the brands Wajer Yachts, Dutch Sat and Centaur.
The production base of the shipyard is located in the Frisian city of Heerenveen. All work is done on its own, from molds to teak interiors. The area of production facilities is 5000 sq.m.
C-Yacht's range of sailing yachts includes serial or semi-custom vessels in composite hulls up to 50 feet long. Yachts are built with a central or Mediterranean cockpit. The shipyard works closely with Dykstra Naval Architects.
