Welcome to Van Dorresteijn Design

We can offer a full design for both yachts and commercial vessels, but also lifting plans, stability booklets, cutting files etc. With a large package of specialized software we can always be of service.

We can engineer in any material steel, aluminum, wood or composites.


In June started the construction of total new developed 18 m aluminum yacht at B. van de Hoven Jachtbouw with exterior and interior styling of Rene van de Velden Design.


In September our 13m classic tugboat design was launched. The boat made it first appearance at the Hiswa boatshow at the stand of Next Generation Shipyards.


This year has started with the launch of the third 15 m fish farm workboat and the keel laying of an all new developed 15 m depth survey vessel.


This year will start with the keel laying of a 19 m workboat for the fish farm market and the final construction stages a 15 m motor yacht, two 15m workboats and the extension project of a 50 m motor yacht.


The past year has been full of several interesting projects. Construction of a new 15 m motor yacht, the extension of a 45m motor yacht originally built by the shipyard Oceanco in 1994, Construction of two 15 m workboats for the fish farm market and several other engineering jobs like a towing bollard and platform for a ballast cleaning system for a large container vessel.


We have worked on several new workboat concepts for the crew transport, rescue service and pilot service market. Another interesting project has been the design of a column for a 100m Mobile drilling Unit. In November was the delivery trip of the survey vessel Stickers Gat Cuxhaven for which we did strength calculations and the construction drawings. The trip from Groningen was done in the proper weather for this class of vessel, a nice NW6 and 3 meters waves.
