Refit & conversion

Keeping up to date

In the course of time wishes and needs of people change. This often also applies to the ships in their possession. A longer ship, different superstructure, complete new look or conversion of workship to pleasure yacht or vice versa. Everything is possible.

Shipyard Talsma has the right people, equipment and facilities to completely refit yachts and workboats. By collaborating with EWD in Emden, Germany, we even have access to a dry-dock with a length of 220 meters. This allows us to serve even the largest mega yachts.


A ship can get a "second life" through a refit. Economic and / or time-factors often prove refit to be the wiser choice over new building. We can extend the economic, technical and emotional lifespan of your ship.


For the conversion of a ship you are also at the right place. Whether it is the conversion from cargo ship to luxury river cruiser, from barge to work platform or from pontoon to training institute. When you have a project in which the purpose of your ship has to be converted than we are the right partner.

Lengthening your ship

Besides refitting and converting your ship, Talsma is also equipped to lengthen your ship. Whatever your reason may be, and whether it's a pleasure yacht or a fishing vessel, we have the personnel and experience to expertly lengthen your ship.

Shipyard Talsma is always willing to to explore the possibilities of your project.
