Sneek – The brothers Marcel and Sander Jetten, have sold their yard, Jetten Shipyard in Sneek, to director Jeannot Grim. They want to give the Sneker wharf the space for further international growth.
The brothers do not say goodbye to “their baby” because they remain closely involved with the Sneker wharf, which is currently experiencing an international growth spurt. The yard has gained a place on the international market with a very active policy of innovation in building steel and aluminum ships. Thanks in part to this policy, which culminated in the title European Power Boat of the Year Award in 2015 and 2017, the international name and fame of the shipyard is increasing.
Marcel Jetten: “My brother Sander and I founded the yard 20 years ago after we both had years of experience with other employers. We both have a clear preference for building and developing ships, but the growth and hand in hand with the intensifying management tasks meant that we were moving further and further away from the shop floor. With the sale of our company we can concentrate again on what we are best at. “
