KM Yachtbuilders has expanded its premises with two new painting halls. The new painting halls will be used to paint ships, masts and interiors.

The Dutch boatbuilder, whose yard is in Makkum, says this step was taken due to the increase in in-house painting and the expansion of the painting team. Apart from KM Yachtbuilders’ own frequent use of the new painting hall, the company will also offer other parties the opportunity to paint at the site.

“We had been struggling for some time with lack of space for our painting operations and noticed that there were also few options in the area,” says René Feenstra, KM Yachtbuilders‘ business manager. “After careful consideration, we tied the knot and decided to invest in these new halls. Because of the new halls we are also able to do work for others. We are very happy with the result and look forward to doing a lot of paint work here.”

The new halls consist of two cabins. The large cabin is 38x7x6m and can be split into two parts. This allows space for two ships or masts in the large cabin. The small cabin is 12x4x4m and will be used mainly for painting interiors or smaller ships.
