Den Breejen Shipyard

Policy statement


At Den Breejen Shipyard, shipbuilding is in our DNA. Founded in 1947 and since then based in Hardinxveld-Giessendam, Den Breejen Shipyard has become a major player in the inland shipping sector, both for new construction and for repair and refit. The specialization in the construction of river cruise ships has, over the past 20 years, increased brand awareness in shipbuilding. The increased market share in this specific sector has also led to an expansion of the regular clientele. We design, develop and build fully custom-built and realize projects within the set delivery time.


We are a family business with a strong commitment to the work we deliver. We stand for customer-oriented services in the field of shipbuilding, repair and refit, and we attach value to personal contact with our clients and suppliers. Our mission is to deliver innovative, high-quality products and services, in which safety, efficiency, sustainability and customer satisfaction take up a central position. 


We take our responsibility for health, safety and the environment. We set the bar high and amply meet the applicable laws and regulations, including the standards that apply specifically to our industry. Ships are equipped with sustainable materials and systems. We invest in safe and solid machines and tools. Employees and subcontractors are qualified and have their own specific responsibility when performing their duties. Social involvement is given substance by sponsoring regional  and industry related activities.


Den Breejen Shipyard is certified according to ISO9001: 2015 and VCA 2017 / 6.0. We strive to keep a high customer satisfaction. Therefore, improving the quality of our services is an ongoing process. Our company site and the work performed on it carries risks. Our policy is aimed at preventing and continuously improving incidents in the field of working conditions and environmental performance. What we have in mind is a stable, progressive company that puts shipbuilding on the map innovatively and internationally.
