Every year it is a challenge to make sure that refit projects find their way to the Dutch refit specialists at Balk Shipyard. As business is already blossoming at Balk Shipyard with refit projects such as DANCING HARE, COPIHUE and VALERIA, the yard is proud to announce that ALUMERCIA is the yard’s newest arrival.

Captain Story: Sam Watts of SY Surama

Captain Story: Sam Watts of SY Surama

When we asked Sam Watts — captain of the 41-metre SY Surama — if he would like to cooperate on the first edition of the Balk Shipyard captain’s story, we immediately got a big yes. It is something different than the usual talk about yachts, it is a talk with crew on yachts! 

Launch MY Explora

Launch MY Explora

In November 2016 MY Charisma came to the premises in Urk after her Owner granted Balk Shipyard the refit. As soon as she was in the refit facility her new Owner decided to change her name into MY Explora. Very applicable as her Owners plan to explore the seas with her.

Sandalphon launched

Sandalphon launched

This unique project cannot be framed as a refit or as a new build but is the perfect example of a rebuild. In 2015 Sandalphon (also known as Project Gisele) came to the premises in Urk after her Owner granted Balk Shipyard the project due to its good reputation as a refit and rebuild specialist and its heritage. Now Sandalphon is ready to be launched and to discover the world.
