About us

DE GROOT FAMILY AND PIKMEERKRUISER

As a little brother and sister, they watched with admiration as their father and grandfather worked with passion in the shipyard. Hendrik de Groot senior started the tradition in 1963 by building steel cruisers named after the nearby Pikmeer. Now grandson Hendrik and granddaughter Hilde de Groot are at the helm of the shipyard in Grou. Where these iconic boats of timeless design are built. Many generations of 100% Dutch craftsmanship and unique customisation.

STRIVING FOR PERFECTION SINCE 1963

Our credo: It can always be more beautiful, better and more practical. We already have more than 600 Pikmeerkruisers under the belt, but what we said with the 10th Pikmeerkruiser remains true of the 610th Pikmeerkruiser. The yacht we build is the beating heart of your sun-drenched trip; everything must be perfect. Our team is driven by craftsmanship, satisfied clients and is always striving for more comfort and luxury.

CRAFTSMANSHIP FOR LOYAL ENTHUSIASTS

Only the best and most durable material is used for the three headliners in the Pikmeerkruiser series: the Open Cockpit, the Long Roof, the Aft Cabin and the FlyBridge. We guard a unique heritage; craftsmanship, timeless design and technical innovation. This heritage would not be here without those who buy our yachts; the Pikmeerkruiser family. Lovers of freedom, nature and the enjoyment of being together.

PIKMEERKRUISER TEAM

Your dream becomes our dream and we are fully committed to making it come true. Our in-house team of painters, carpenters, technicians and designers is fantastic at working together. This ensures that we go the extra mile and provide customised services. Driven by a passion for boats, the lines are short and the processes flexible.
