Family companies Natural Yachts and Electric Ship Facilities are moving to De Voorst near Vollenhove

The choice for a new location reflects the importance Natural Yachts and Electric Ship Facilities are giving to sustainability. A central theme both companies are working on is accelerating the energy transition.

Natural Yachts - The Experience Centre of new innovative technology in modern yachts The family-owned company Natural Yachts, known for the charter and sales of 100% electric motorboats, sailboats and X Shore tenders, has relocated due to its growth and ambition to welcome customers and guests in a natural environment befitting the look and feel of the all-electric yachts with innovative technology.

Currently, Natural Yachts is the first charter company worldwide with a full line of zero emission motor yachts and sailboats. From the new location near Vollenhove, Natural Yachts can further pursue its sustainable growth ambitions. The 100% electric charter fleet will be expanded with new models. From charter season 2023, Natural Yachts will also offer electric powered Maxus sailboats for charter, these are the Maxus Evo 24 Electric and the new Maxus 34 Electric. It is also possible to experience the X Shore boats, the new X Shore 1 launched in September and X Shore's Eelex 8000, will also be offered for charter.

The new location, with stunning views of the Kadoelermeer lake, is strategically and centrally located for potential customers interested in learning about electric boats and emission-free boating. For guests who have booked a holiday on one of the full electric boats, De Voorst/Vollenhove is an ideal starting point from which to navigate in all directions. The Frisian lakes, the Randmeren, the IJsselmeer, the Markermeer and the Weerribben Wieden districts are nearby and are among the most beautiful boating areas in the Netherlands.

Electric Ship Facilities BV - System integrator and distributor of zero emission propulsion and energy systems Electric Ship Facilities stands out as a specialist in zero emission energy systems and is an expert in electric boating. For years, the family-owned company has been committed to effectively driving the energy transition through zero emission innovative technology.

With Electric Ship Facilities' relocation, there will be more space for assembling and installing this clean technology in the line yachts and a sustainability centre for energy technology can be realised.

Jurjen Poorting, CEO of Natural Yachts and Electric Ship Facilities: "We look forward to welcoming our customers and guests from the Netherlands and abroad to this water-rich and green environment, centrally located in the Netherlands. It is time for a new chapter in which, matching the zero emission yachts and technology, we aim for an energy-neutral and sustainably designed location in nature. We are very excited to start working with our team at this innovative and inspiring location."
