And there's a good reason for this. Dutch yacht builders, together with the Italians, are the best yacht builders in the world. Take Feadship for example, no other company anywhere in the world delivers the quality they do. A good friend of mine and one of the finest shipwrights I know used to work for Royal de Vries in Makkum (one of the Feadship yards) and he and a couple of his fellow shipwrights went to the US some years ago for a re-fit on a yacht that was built at de Vries. This was at Christensen Yachts if I remember correctly, and the shipwrights over there thought they were pretty good but after a few days the saying was: "If it aint Dutch, it aint much."
