Clients working with Jan-Jaap appreciate the straight-forward, no-nonsense approach of a Dutchman who has been buying and selling yachts for almost 20 years.

An ex-skipper who understands the business and the pleasure of yachts both on board and off, Jan-Jaap has successfully purchased, sold or built over 100 pleasure boats, including 40 large yachts (and 4 submarines!) ranging from 24 metres (79 feet) to 89 metres (292 feet) in length.

He has represented clients from America, Europe, Russia and the Middle East and was one of the first ever European brokers to represent Asian clients resulting in the successful sale of several 50 metre (164 foot) and 60 metre (197 feet) vessels as well as a record-breaking Asian-built 89 metre (292 feet) new-build project.

Skilled at representing both buyers and sellers (over the last 10 years he has represented both almost equally), Jan-Jaap has bought and sold yachts built by 17 different shipyards (30% of which have been recent new-build projects) whilst also bringing a much sought-after specialization in Dutch-built yachts which today account for over 60% of all his transactions.

Fluent in four languages, Jan-Jaap is trusted worldwide for his in-depth market knowledge and forthright guidance in helping clients, 51% of them repeat clients, to enjoy that winning combination of securing the right yacht with the smoothest of transactions.
