Holland Yachting Group is back with new zest, under new leadership

By Robert Wielaard

holland yacht group

ROTTERDAM – After a year of  COVID-19 nastiness, Holland Yachting Group is back with a new website, more members, new leadership, and a renewed ambition to show the world the custom quality of Dutch superyacht builders and their suppliers.

A year ago, the Dutch superyacht lobby left – after 50 years! – the HISWA watersports organization. It was keen to cast its marketing net wider and found a new home within the Netherlands Maritime Technology, the massive trade lobby for the Netherlands’ maritime sector.

The group’s new leader is Eddie Kloosterman. As Division Manager HYG within NMT, he rebuilt the superyacht lobby reeling in 31 members, ordered up a new HYG logo, launched a new website and crafted a marketing strategy to position Dutch superyacht building worldwide.

Shoring up that ambition is the slogan of old that nudges you to “Think Yachts. Think Holland.”

The coronavirus, says Kloosterman, made 2020 a very unusual year. “There were no shows in Monaco and Fort Lauderdale,” he says. “And the METSTRADE show in Amsterdam was also called off.” And yet, for Dutch superyacht builders and their suppliers, 2020 was a banner year. They delivered tens of one-off yachts and enjoyed fat order books.

In reconstituting the Holland Yachting Group within the NMT fold, Kloosterman enrolled 6 superyacht builders (he is working on several more), 16 equipment makers, a naval architect, a handful of yacht interior builders, 2 engineering firms and a lifestyle company.

Kloosterman says joining the NMT has been a boon. NMT boasts ample experience in staging trade missions. Its 437 members have tons of expertise in the maritime sectors.

“They are a powerful resource for Dutch yacht builders in very specialist areas such as emission-free propulsion, for instance,” says Kloosterman. “It’s our mission​ to strengthen the competitive position of the Dutch yachting industry in the global market.”

Holland Yachting Group’s members:

  • 6 builders : Oceanco, Contest Yachts, Royal Huisman, Moonen Yachts, Heesen Yachts, Feadship
  • 1 naval architecture studio : Van Oossanen
  • 16 equipment builders : Cramm Yachting, Emigreen, Esthec, HUG Engineering, Hydromar Marine Equipment, MarQuip, Naiad Dynamics Holland, Newthex Ned, Pon Power, RH Marine, Radio Holland, Radio Zeeland DMP, Rondal, Royal Deck, SIP Marine and VABO Composites.
  • 5 interiors builders : Alukwa, Kuiper Holland, Lanka Marble, Struik & Hamerslag, Zijlstra International Decoration.
  • 2 engineering companies : Alewijnse Marine, STI Engineering
  • 1 lifestyle company : Luxury Hospitality Management

Established in 1990 as a yard that built traditional yachts, Holland Jachtbouw has emerged as one of the world’s most renowned shipyards for newly built superyachts and refits of yachts over 90 feet. Over the course of three decades, Holland Jachtbouw has built several award winning yachts including Athos, the largest two-mast schooner in history, as well as two unique J Class yachts Rainbow and Topaz.

Anjilis (former Cassiopeia)



Our newly built yachts and refits are carried out with the utmost precision, passion for detail and love for craftsmanship. Carefully-selected, high-quality materials are used by a team of highly skilled craftsmen in all aspects of yachtbuilding.

Master craftsmanship. Naturally selected elements, engineering precision and the latest technologies play their part to achieve the perfect result.

Founded in the early 1990s, Holland Jachtbouw will pursue to build its exceptional reputation from her brand-new facility with a large production capacity in Enkhuizen. Working with top naval architects worldwide, the build and project management teams continue to produce a world class product, using leading suppliers and subcontractors from the heart of the Dutch yachting industry.

Windrose of Amsterdam

When Chris Gongriep wanted to finish his 13-metre wooden barge under his own management in 1990, little did he know that the shipyard he founded for this purpose, De Hemmes , would be the start of a bright future as a world-renowned superyacht builder.

While customers continued to request well-known Lemsteraken , Chris’ ambition grew into building the ideal charter yacht. After years of extensive study, Sapphire was built in 1996, a classic 31-metre sailing yacht. This was the start for Holland Jachtbouw and the transition to aluminium sailing and motor yachts was made.

Holland Jachtbouw grew into a successful yard with an extensive delivery program for superyachts up to 130 feet. The portfolio of more than thirty prestigious classic and modern superyachts in various categories demonstrate the craftsmanship and unlimited possibilities of the yard.

Athos , Topaz and Rainbow are just a few examples of dreams becoming reality; each demonstrating the extreme precision, passion for detail and love of craftsmanship with which they are built. Only dedicated specialists with decades of experience can achieve the quality of finish in new construction as well as refits and restorations. It is this quality, expertise and love for the profession that attracted the international clientele to Holland Jachtbouw.

Chris passed away in 2016 and at the request of his heirs, VMG Yachtbuilders continues the Holland Jachtbouw legacy with great respect for its founder. Its legacy is a fitting addition to VMG’s portfolio, which is in the same segment up to about 90 feet. Holland Jachtbouw is therefore moving to Enkhuizen, the epicenter of traditional yacht building and where the love and passion for craftsmanship is passed on from generation to generation.

Like a Phoenix rising from its ashes, Holland Jachtbouw will build the next generation of future classics at its new state-of-the-art location.

Russian court sentences US soldier to nearly 4 years on theft charges

U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Gordon Black sits in a glass cage in courtroom in Vladivostok, Russia, on Wednesday, June 19, 2024. Black is on trial on charges of theft and threatening murder in a dispute with a Russian woman. Russian state media reported that he denied the allegation of threatening murder but "partially" admitted to theft. (AP Photo)

MOSCOW – A court in Russia’s far eastern city of Vladivostok on Wednesday sentenced an American soldier arrested earlier this year to three years and nine months in prison on charges of stealing and threats of murder, Russian news reports said.

Staff Sgt. Gordon Black, 34, flew to Vladivostok, a Pacific port city, to see his girlfriend and was arrested after she accused him of stealing from her, according to U.S. officials and Russian authorities.

Russian state news agencies Tass and RIA Novosti reported from the courtroom in the Pervomaisky District Court in Vladivostok that the judge also ordered Black to pay 10,000 rubles ($115) in damages. Prosecutors had asked for Black to be sentenced to four years and eight months in prison.

Black’s sentencing further complicates U.S. relations with Russia, which have grown increasingly tense as the fighting in Ukraine continues.

Russia is holding a number of Americans in its jails, including corporate security executive Paul Whelan and Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich . The U.S. government has designated both men as wrongfully detained and has been trying to negotiate for their release.

Others detained include Travis Leake , a musician who had been living in Russia for years and was arrested last year on drug-related charges; Marc Fogel, a teacher in Moscow who was sentenced to 14 years in prison, also on drug charges; and dual nationals Alsu Kurmasheva and Ksenia Khavana .

The U.S. State Department strongly advises American citizens not to go to Russia.

Under Pentagon policy, service members must get clearance for any international travel from a security manager or commander.

The U.S. Army said last month that Black hadn’t sought clearance for the international travel and it wasn’t authorized by the Defense Department. Given the hostilities in Ukraine and threats to the U.S. and its military, it is extremely unlikely he would have been granted approval.

Black was on leave and in the process of returning to his home base at Fort Cavazos, Texas, from South Korea, where he had been stationed at Camp Humphreys with the Eighth Army.

Cynthia Smith, an Army spokesperson, said Black signed out for his move back home and, “instead of returning to the continental United States, Black flew from Incheon, Republic of Korea, through China to Vladivostok, Russia, for personal reasons.”

Black’s girlfriend, Alexandra Vashchuk, told reporters earlier this month that “it was a simple domestic dispute,” during which Black “became aggressive and attacked” her. “He then stole money from my wallet and I didn’t give him permission to do it,” Vashchuk said.

U.S. officials have said that Black, who is married, met his girlfriend in South Korea.

According to U.S. officials, the Russian woman had lived in South Korea, and last fall she and Black got into some type of domestic dispute or altercation. After that, she left South Korea. It isn’t clear if she was forced to leave or what, if any, role South Korean authorities had in the matter.

Tiara Yachts’ Michelle Seneca Named a 2024 “Women Making Waves” Recipient by Boating Industry

HOLLAND, Mich., June 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tiara Yachts, a family-owned manufacturer of American-made luxury watercrafts celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2024, today announced that Director of IT, Michelle Seneca, has been selected as a winner of the 2024 Boating Industry’s Women Making Waves award.

As a valued member of the Tiara Yachts team for more than three decades, Michelle began her career as executive assistant to David Slikkers, president and eventual CEO of S2 Yachts. As her reach into the organization grew, she found a passion for technology, continued her college education, received a leadership role within the team’s IT department, and ultimately became the first woman to join the Senior Leadership team.

“When I first came to work at Tiara, I took notes at the Senior Leadership meetings. Today, I’m a member of the Senior Leadership team and I’m able to influence and contribute in a greater way to the success of the company,” said Seneca.


In her role, Seneca successfully implemented an enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, making Tiara Yachts one of the first marine industry manufacturers to integrate automation technologies to boat production lines. In return, Tiara Yachts has increased production efficiencies, empowered marine industry craftsman to focus on the art of the build, and strengthen customer satisfaction.

However, one of the things she’s most passionate about is mentoring other young women to pursue an education in the male-dominated IT field.

As of 2022, women held only 28% of computing and mathematical roles in the US (Zippia). Furthermore, women accounted for only 18% of computer science degrees (Bureau of Labor Statistics) and half of women pursuing tech industry positions drop out by the age of 35 (Accenture). Seneca feels privileged to have grown Tiara Yachts’ IT department with nearly half the team being females.

“Being able to shape and inspire young women in technology and the marine world is really rewarding. I'm grateful to be a part of Tiara’s team and I look forward to witnessing the future of women in the marine industry,” continued Seneca.

The Women Making Waves award honors the women in the industry who have and continue to contribute to its success, propel its growth and lead their individual organizations to success. Tiara Yachts’ Quality Manager Fawn Filley-Myers received the recognition in 2023.

“Michelle’s dedication to Tiara and to uplifting women in the marine industry is truly inspiring,” said Tom Slikkers, CEO and President of Tiara Yachts. “Her efforts and implementations have propelled Tiara’s practices to a new level of performance, streamlining the way we do things without compromising quality, creativity, or craftsmanship. I look forward to watching her continue to grow in her career and to witnessing how she continues to shape the future generation of women in the marine industry.”

Now we know how the land lies after the opening games of Group E, it’s all eyes on the second game in Group F.

It’s the World Cup runners-up France in Euro 2024 action for the first time, as they take on Austria in Dusseldorf.

And the great news is you can follow that one with us live too. All you need to do to follow France vs Austria is head here .

Red, white, blue — and flying high

Red, white, blue — and flying high

What a day for Slovakia's national side. Scenes to savour.

Get briefed on the first major upset of Euro 2024

What a day for Slovakia then, as they produce the first major upset of the 2024 European Championship — beating Belgium, the world’s third-ranked side.

Slovakia are just 48th in FIFA’s rankings, but continued a trend of early goals in this tournament.

Then there were two key VAR interventions — both ruling out Romelu Lukaku goals.

That meant a disappointing start to the Euros for a Belgium side whose last tournament appearance was a miserable elimination at the 2022 World Cup.

Grab all you need to know from events in Frankfurt thanks to Carl Anka and Paddy Boyland , with the link below.

Belgium's profligacy finally bites

Belgium's profligacy finally bites

This is probably more of a worry though. Belgium have now failed to convert any of their last 47 shots in major tournaments — that is essentially World Cups and European Championships.

The figure includes 11 big chances.

What a waste, and the root of their issues against Slovakia today.

The epic unbeaten run is over. And. HOW.

The epic unbeaten run is over. And. HOW.

And it was all going so well. As much of an upset as that was, it is also Belgium first defeat since November 27, 2022. That was against Morocco in the group stages of the Qatar World Cup.

With that, the second-longest unbeaten run in Belgian men's football is over after 15 matches: 10 wins, five draw.

A short story with xG

A short story with xG

So, Romelu Lukaku recorded an expected goals value this afternoon of 0.82. And yes, that does exclude his two disallowed goals.

The xG value for the entire Slovakia team that just won 1-0? That would be 0.59.

Carl Anka

How the two teams dealt with it

How the two teams dealt with it

Interesting contrast.

Belgium doing their team huddle on the field. De Bruyne - the furthest figure in red - was the last figure to join as he was apologising to fans.

Michael Dominski

Belgium's unbeaten run ends

Belgium have lost their first match since November 27, 2022, when they were defeated by Morocco in the group stage of the World Cup,

That ends the second-longest unbeaten run in Belgian history, 15 matches.

Full-time stats zone

What a remarkable game. One where the numbers would only ever tell a slither of the story. Still, here are those numbers…

FT: Belgium 0-1 Slovakia

  • Possession: 60% — 40%
  • Shots: 16 — 10
  • On target: 5 — 4
  • XG: 1.91 — 0.59
  • Big chances: 4 — 1
  • Blocked shots: 5 — 2
  • Duels won: 39 — 37
  • Dispossessed: 2 — 11

The way Slovakia dug in and won duels in those final 10 minutes was fantastic, and it made sure they took advantage of those decisions that went in their favour.

But all those numbers point to the fact it should have been much better for Belgium, regardless of the narrow VAR calls.

Chaos in Group E

Chaos in Group E

Who saw these two results coming?! Here's how the table looks after the first pair of matches.

  • Romania : 3 points, +3 goal difference
  • Slovakia : 3 pts, +1 gd
  • Belgium : 0 pts, -1 gd
  • Ukraine : 0 pts, -3 gd

Dominic Fifield

The first proper upset of Euro 2024

The first proper upset of Euro 2024

That is a sensational result for Slovakia, who have ruthlessly taken advantage of Belgium's profligacy. Regardless of whether Tedesco's team are in transition, Euro 2024 has its first proper upset.

De Bruyne not at his best

De Bruyne not at his best

Lukaku will get the bulk of the criticism today, but this has been a uneven performance from captain De Bruyne as well. He's overhit a lot of passes and he's limited by a lack of burst when carrying the ball.

A famous and unexpected win for Francesco Calzona's side.

Slovakia have done it! They've beaten Belgium!

Belgium 0-1 Slovakia

It's the biggest upset in Euros history according to the FIFA rankings!

Belgium nearly out of time

90+7' Belgium 0-1 Slovakia

Strelec wins the ball in midfield and Suslov is able to sprint away down the left wing. He eventually loses possession but he has still run valuable seconds off the clock.

Moments later, Belgium launch an errant cross that runs out for a goal kick and Slovakia can really feel it now!

Slovakia trying to run out the clock

90+4' Belgium 0-1 Slovakia

Slovakia are doing everything they can to run out the clock here. Duda goes down and receives treatment as he's being substituted.

Adam Obert comes on as Slovakia's final sub.

90+2' Belgium 0-1 Slovakia

Suddenly Slovakia look utterly exhausted, despite all the substitutions. These are going to be a long seven minutes. Imagine how daunting they would have felt had Belgium just drawn level...

Drama ensues, red mist follows

Drama ensues, red mist follows

90+1' Belgium 0-1 Slovakia

You could not make this up. Belgium were celebrating. They were convinced they had equalised courtesy of Lukaku's thumping finish, and were preparing to kick the game off again in frantic search of a winner.

Then for the second time, the VAR check goes against them. Openda is penalised for the faintest of handballs as he scrapped with Vavro on the left touchline in the build-up to the goal. The mood of those in red is mutinous on and off the pitch.

SEVEN minutes added on

Slovakia fans will hate that, as seven minutes are added on to the end of the match.


89' Belgium 0-1 Slovakia

Openda did indeed handle the ball in the build-up and Lukaku has had a second goal disallowed today!
