GROWING ONE STEP AT A TIME
A new shed was added in Hardinxveld in 1941. This represents the company’s First expansion. No one could know at the time that Damen was destined to grown into an international group of companies operating 33 ship and repair yards all over the globe.
Pictured here is the Damen workforce with the yard’s 100th vessel. Today, the Damen Shipyards Group has delivered over 6,000 vessels to clients all over the world.
In 1942, Damen delivered YN 116, a twin mast sailing vessel for client Schenk.
