Designer VripackSneek, Friesland, NL
Vripack creative directors, Bart M. Bouwhuis and Marnix J. Hoekstra, share their passion for yachting and creating yachts that make each owner feel at home, at sea.
From the moment it threw open its doors in 1961, Vripack studio’s approach to design has been governed by the playful interaction of form and function, intuition and intelligence, and balance and performance. The studio is yet to receive a yacht-related request it could not grant, nor a question it could not answer. With decades of experience at our disposal and a portfolio that represents over 7,400 designs, we’ve been able to craft some of the finest, safest, most durable, most comfortable and most beautiful yachts ever made. No one understands more clearly that a yacht is a finely balanced combination of elements, as opposed to something that relies heavily on one feature or is built to excel on a single dimension, and it is this holistic approach and our ability to get the balance right time and time again that allows us to produce yachts that our clients find so satisfying to use in every way.
Due to an expanding order book, we are seeking enthusiastic full-time team players with a high capacity for creativity and design innovation who will soon be proud once his/her designs will be sailing over the seas, making the owners feel more than at home.
