60 years experience in shipbuilding, winching, maintenance & repair, marine engines, dry-docking

LUYT was established on 23 December 1960 by Jan Luijt near the port of Den Oever. This family business that started as a one-man business in winches has grown into an all-round shipyard over the past 60 years – consisting of Machinefabriek & Dokbedrijf LUYT BV – with customers all over the world and approximately 50 employees.

One of the company’s most important services is the maintenance, repair, and reconstruction of fishing boats. In addition, LUYT specialises in winch installations and has developed and launched a range of leading new-build vessels for the fishing industry. In 2021, LUYT won a Fishing Award for the design and realisation of a beam trawler (BM-100) destined for England, and in 2020, it was nominated for a Fishing Award for an Irish beam trawler (WD-3), both of which were designed and finished in-house at LUYT. LUYT creates customised and, above all, efficient ships in close cooperation with the customer.

In the early years, it was mainly the fishermen of Wieringen knocking on our door, but nowadays, the entire fishing fleet from all over the world knows where to find LUYT. Customers from various maritime sectors find their way to LUYT for engineering, installations and commissioning, maintenance, repair & overhaul, conversion & new-build, and applications such as winches and propulsion systems for tugboat services (tugs), offshore, and dredging industry. All our customers can count on receiving the same professional service and high-level commitment.
