About us


NG Shipyards designs and builds as well as maintaining and repairing work boats up to 30 metres. An important issue for us is the continuing search for durable applications and technologies to reduce our ecological footprint. We find it a challenge to apply all our specialist knowledge and for that reason we spend time and energy in various initiatives and projects. The further development of the yacht Ecolution is one example of this commitment.

Our company consists of motivated employees who are all skilled in the field of shipbuilding and ship repair. We work within a non-hierarchical structure, are hard working, knowledgeable and flexible and are well able to look after our customers in a responsible manner. NG Shipyards has joined the Koninklijke Metaal Unie and operates under the regulations of the Metaalunie Algemene Voorwaarden and the CAO Metaal en Techniek.

We are an approved work placement for students up to apprenticeship level 3 and see it as part of our role to regularly mentor BBL students. We continually seek to deepen our own knowledge and to find ways to better serve the professional market. To aid these objectives we are members of the Dutch Ocean Group (DOG) and the Hydrografic Society Benelux (HSB).


NG Shipyards wants to do business in a socially responsible manner. To de so we use established standards and values which are constantly communicated to our employees. Our core values can be summarized into respect, openness and involvement.



NG Shipyards strives for a healthy transparent business operation and wants to use opportunities for a better environment and better well-being of the employees. In carrying out our activities we give ample attention to environmental aspects and to the design of our workplaces.


NG Shipyards is serious about climate change and therefore works as one of the partners in the Wadduurzaam Foundation to make the ship Ecolution completely free of fossil fuels and turn it into the flagship of sustainability while focussing on introducing hydrogen solutions.
