It was 2002 in the Netherlands when entrepreneur and sailor, Sietse Koopmans, founded Zeelander Yachts. After years of his own personal boating, he decided to perfect a high-quality, cutting-edge, sports cruiser design of his very own! The yachts he had in mind would redefine the edge in cutting, using the highest quality materials inside and out. With an affinity for a boat with all curved surfaces, Sietse, believed he could capture the sun’s light, with this design, to perfectly reflect the hull at its finest angles.
