The Balk family business opened its doors in 1798 building wooden vessels on a small slipway in Elburg. Seven generations later, Daan Balk is at the helm of the company and Balk Shipyard has evolved into a leading shipyard for the refit and construction of luxury yachts.

The Balk family is proud of its long history and has always moved with the times. This has allowed the yard to position itself well in the international market for refit, rebuilds and new builds of superyachts. Thanks to the cooperation of our highly valued employees and suppliers, we can translate complex challenges into innovative solutions.
