Lynx is dedicated to building the highest quality custom yachts and support vessels, efficiently and on time.

Our goal is not only to construct our clients’ dreams but to make that process as pleasurable as the finished yacht herself.

To do that, we begin by listening to our clients, their advisors and their Captains.

Our team brings decades of experience delivering exceptional yachts built in the tradition of Dutch yacht builders, something that you feel as soon the moment you step on board.

However exceptional in style and detail, all Lynx Yachts have something in common: they are seaworthy and dependable.

We segregate our work into two dedicated divisions:

  • steel and aluminium custom yachts, 24 to 50 metres LOA.
  • Yacht X Tenders (YXT) shadow vessels, from 20 to 36 metres LOA.

Our yard

The Lynx yard is in the heart of Netherlands with easy to both Amsterdam’s Schiphol International Airport and Rotterdam Airport.

The temperature-controlled facility has exclusive access to a private quay.

Our people have unsurpassed shipbuilding experience, with a dedication to the traditional values of craftsmanship.
