About Smelne

Our strength lies in the diversity of our products. We offer a choice of 37 models that are built completely on our yard in Drachten according to your very own design. Each luxury steel-clad Smelnemotor yacht is of high quality. You already have a boat? Of course your are also more than welcome for service and maintenance work.

We have 2,400m2 of space at our disposal for winter moorings, approx. 90 berths in our harbour and 36 covered berths in the Smelne Marina. This is also where we sell used motor yachts. You are more than welcome to visit us.

The family business was established in 1968. What once started in a workshop adjacent to a farm has now become a modern boatyard. Read more about the history with photos of all Smelne models over the years.
