KM Yachtbuilders specializes in the building and finishing of aluminum custom built sailing yachts. We also supply aluminum hulls for sailing and motor yachts up to thirty metres length. KM Yachtbuilders also build and maintain aluminium structures for onshore and offshore equipment. We build aluminium parts for Royal Huisman Shipyard and De Vries Feadship.

This market segment requires high quality standards. Our shipbuilders, carpenters and marine engineers have proved time and again that they can deliver the goods.

Our modern yard is located in the village of Makkum at the IJsselmeer. You can even reach us by boat! You are cordially invited to come and visit the yard. We would be more than happy to show you around.

Next to building new yachts we are also specialised in refits of any size. We also offer space for winter storage, inside or outside on the hard.


In 1997 Eeuwe Kooi started with storage for yachts and carrying out minor repairs on them at the current location at Stienplaat 7 under the name Kooi Makkum.


Makkum is a small, old fishing town. In the town centre, you’ll find a variety of shops, for example a toyshop, pharmacy, bakery, bike shop and many cafes and restaurants. When visiting us and/or Makkum with children, it might be a fun idea to go to the beach near our yard (ca. 2 miles). A refreshing walk or drink on a terrace is a nice way of winding down from a busy day.


On course together! Employees form a company’s most important capital. We make sure that we stay on course at all times by working according to some core values that act as a magnet for us all.
