As son of a shipbuilding family, grandfather Auke van der Werff started the Volharding shipyard in 1918, where the yacht brokerage is now based. Here inland barges and fishing vessels were built.


In the subsequent generation of my father Anton van der Werff, these original activities in the field of yacht building were further developed and the yard gained a high reputation through the construction of the Staverse Kotter. In 1988 the yacht building department was separated from the shipyard and moved to a new location.


Due to the current regulations, the shipyard’s repair activities were no longer allowed at this historic location. This was the reason that I, Arthur van der Werff, threw the helm in 1995 and set up the yacht brokerage at this unique spot in the center of the IJsselmeer town of Stavoren!


Nautisch Kwartier Stavoren has all the necessary amenities to operate successfully in the water sports industry. Our spacious sales port has 45 moorings on water and 25 on shore at our beautiful sales platform. Of course, we offer water and power supplies to keep your boat in optimal condition.


In 2003 we moved into the new building. This property consists of an office part which has a sleek, relaxed and progressive interior with a nautical touch. Privacy is paramount and therefore it offers 6 meeting rooms where you can do business with our brokers in peace and quiet. We also have a modern workshop and showroom.


For cleaning your boat, we use the so-called’ osmosis water’. The tap water is filtered through in such a way that the use of cleaning products is nearly superfluous. In combination with special brushes it is an ideal system for cleaning boats.


Finally, we have a 20-ton column slewing crane and a boat wagon. In short, we are able to offer the full-service package to you as customer.
