The legend is back !


A customer of Altena Yachting wanted a seagoing yacht. A new ship, but after a proven concept. This is how the design of the Doggersbank came into the picture. According to Vripack Yacht Design in Sneek, hundreds of these have been built. Co-director Bart Bouwhuis of Vripack: “A solid, rigid and optimally developed design, ready to perform under all conditions. The Dogger Bank has long been known as a reliable yacht, designed and built in the Netherlands. What you see is what you get.”

Altena Yachting: We started building the Altena Doggerbank 66′ Offshore this spring with a steel round bilged hull and an aluminum superstructure.
The first images show a very sturdy ship with classic lines. A falling bow with falling fenders and high bulwarks, a Portuguese bridge around the wheelhouse and a spacious saloon behind it. On top are a flybridge and deck. In addition to the radar bracket, there will also be a loading crane for the dinghy.
Below deck are three cabins with six permanent berths and two separate shower and toilet rooms. In the engine room, two John Deere
6-cilinder diesels geïnstalleerd van 250 pk elk. To increase comfort on board, the Doggersbank will receive a stabilization system from Naiad. Verder wordt het schip uitgerust met twee 7,5 meter lange spudpalen van Leeuwenstein, los van het ankergerei voor diep water. Completion is scheduled for late 2021/early 2022.
