The timeless heritage of Eista Werf boats

In 1959, an event marked the beginning of a company that would become one of the most renowned shipyards in the Netherlands.

The baron is faced with an unexpected situation – baron Maurits van Wassenaer’s rowing boat is stolen. In order to deal with this incident, he decided to have a new boat built.

And so began the Eista Werf’s story

Based in Ammerzoden, near Netherhemert, this shipyard quickly became one of the most successful in the Netherlands, leaving an indelible mark on the shipbuilding industry.
