We build yachts that last for eternity.
Not only extremely beautiful, but also practical
and well thought out. We build a yacht that feels
as a companion for you and the future generations
that sail on her.
Do you prefer lakes, rivers and canals? If so, the Enkcraft Mackum is your perfect companion. It is made of steel and thanks to its double engines in combination with a bow thruster has an optimal manoeuvrability between commercial vessels on large rivers. This while engine noise, draught and vertical clearance are kept to a minimum. With her upright windows of the wheelhouse she has the appearance of a (mini) mega yacht. The Enkcraft Mackum is built in a series of 13.50 to 18 metres.
Do you prefer to go out into the open water? No sea is too high for an aluminium Enkcraft Statum. To increase comfort an manoeuvrability at sea, this fast sailing motor yacht is standard equipped with a stabilisation system. Different seating groups on deck give you the opportunity to relax in the sun or shade. You can choose from a range between 18 and 24 meters. In terms of styling and layout, a lot is possible, which is why we look together with you to the most suitable solutions and possibilities.
Do you like speed but do not want to lose out on comfort? Then this is the ideal yacht for you, whether you sail in the Mediterranean or the North European waters. One customer once described it as this: ‘It seems as if her elegant appearance flirts with the surroundings’. In this fast sailing motor yacht, maximum comfort is combined with minimal maintenance. You have a big say in the interior and style of the yacht. Each Sossego reflects the personal touch of the owner. The Sossego Comfort is a fast sailing aluminium motor yacht from 22 to 30 meters entirely of Dutch manufacture.
The Sossego Sport is a fantastic fast motor yacht, but also a fun boat. The Arnessen drive ensures the right trim. In addition, the perfect underwater hull guarantees a good seaway and a beautiful glide. A speed of over 40 knots can easily be achieved thanks to the two diesel engines of 900 – 1550 hp each. From a technical point of view, the 23 metre long Sossego Sport is a masterpiece and in combination with its looks, the yacht is a real pleasure to sail with.
The Enksail is an aluminium sailing yacht with a very luxurious appearance that above all ensures a lot of sailing pleasure. In the design we have incorporated all the good features of the Noordkaper combined with all our experiences. We have also taken into account the various wishes of our previous customers. For example, we are often told that there is a need for cooking with a view. From the Enksail 50 it is therefore possible to place the galley in the pilothouse. There has been developed a range from 45 to 80 feet for this yacht with good sailing characteristics.
Since 1999 we have been building steel Noordkapers to the design of Martin Bekebrede in the range from 40 to 60 feet. The Noordkaper is characterized by its spacious pilothouse: beautiful to look at, but also offers comfort and safety. During heavy weather everyone can sit inside dry, warm and safe. This makes the Noordkaper very suitable for long trips and it will expend the sailing season. Over the years have not only built the Noordkaper, but also developed and fine-tuned the model. Noordkapers built by Gebroeders van Enkhuizen we therefore call ‘Enksail Noordkapers’.
The Enksail Orion not only has the appearance of a fast ship, it is also. This design by Kees van de Stadt combines safety with sailing performance and comfort. The hull is standard bare aluminium, which offers advantages in terms of maintenance. With its straight bow, the Orion line looks modern. Due to the sporty hull shape, the ship has little water displacement, making it easy to sail with little effort. The Orion range consists of a 49 and 54-footer.
What is custom build?
We build all our yachts custom build or semi custom build. Our own models, the Enksails, Enkcrafts and Sossego models are all semi custom build. This means that the hull of the model is in basic the same every time, but you do have a lot of influence on the interior layout and styling of the yacht. We also build entirely custom build. We have already built motor and sailing yachts by different designers.
New building and refit
Over the years, we have carried out a wide variety of custom build projects for both individuals and other shipyards. We have made custom sailing yachts, fast sailing yachts and motor cruisers in aluminium, steel and polyester. The built of a custom build yacht becomes interesting from a cost-technical point of view from approximately 12 metres. Besides custom build of new yachts you can also contact us for refit work on your existing yacht.
