A good layer of paint protects your yacht against external influences. A well-maintained ship not only look beautiful, it also lasts longer. You can do any paintwork yourself or outsource the works to one of our craftsmen.

A modern ship has a lot of technology on board. In the past, the engine used to be the most complex piece of technology. Today, nothing phases us; solar panels, inverters, battery banks, battery chargers and a lot of other electronic and hydraulics. We wish to travel for longer periods of time in maximum comfort. Should anything break down unexpectedly, it is not always easy to repair.
For this, too, Nautical Centre Nicolaas Witsen has the solution. We have specialist installers. Has something broken down? No problem. Our mobile nautical service as well as our own workplace are ready to help you.
