The birth of the Van Dam Nordia shipyard

The Van Dam Nordia shipyard, founded in 1881, embodies a rich history in the nautical industry. From modest beginnings, the company turned to the pleasure boat sector in 1908.

A decisive turning point came in 1956, when Van Dam Nordia built its first custom sailboat.

Twelve years later, the Dutch shipyard took another step forward, abandoning wood in favor of aluminum.

Over the years, Van Dam Nordia has continued to expand its product range and production capacity.

In 2004, a major milestone was reached with the completion of Psyrax, the first 100-foot unit to leave the yard.

In 2008, the family-run shipyard proudly announces the launch of its new flagship, a fully customizable 120-foot sloop. This vessel represents a true feat of engineering, offering yachtsmen a unique experience at sea.

Van Dam Nordia celebrates its centenary with the launch of its innovative range

On the occasion of the centenary of its foundation, Van Dam Nordia enthusiastically celebrates the achievement of its first century in the yachting business. In 2007, the shipyard launches the Ophira V, an 80-foot sailing yacht with “Traditional” styling.

Van Dam Nordia also presents the production of a 70-foot vessel as part of the new “Performance Cruiser” range.

This innovative range, with its emphasis on lightness, speed and comfort, is rapidly achieving remarkable success.

As a result, the all-new flagship was born. It features a 120-foot aluminum sloop. It has an impressive displacement of just 123 tons. As a fully customizable model, the boat is designed to appeal to owners looking for superior comfort and a thrilling boating experience.
