Royal Niestern Sander is a 100% Dutch shipyard. We are a versatile, strong and modern yard. We also have our own workshop. With over 100 years of knowledge and experience, Royal Niestern Sander can count itself among the best shipyards in the Northern Netherlands. We design, build, maintain and repair ships. Also, we are specialized in often complex customer-oriented ship conversions. The yard is located in the north of the Netherlands and has a direct connection to the North Sea and has three locations in the Northern of the Netherlands: Farmsum, Delfzijl and Eemshaven.
It is our mission to offer the best total and tailor-made solutions in the field of ship building, ship repair and ship conversion.
Royal Niestern Sander was established in 1901 due to a great demand for shipbuilding activities in the Northern Netherlands and the passion of the founders for shipbuilding. Over the years the yard developed more and more specialisms and additional services and grew into the yard that it is now.
It is our top priority to be able to help customers as quickly and efficiently as possible. We will do everything we can to satisfy our customers. ‘Unburdening’ customers is what we prefer to do and the drive for everyone is working at Niestern Sander. “Your ship is in good hands with us!”
We have decades of experience in designing, operating and maintaining different types of seagoing vessels.

With expertise and experience, Niestern Sander has built, maintained and repaired many types of dredgers.
Situated near the Wadden Sea and islands, the Niestern Sander yard is visited by many types of ferries.
Health, safety, environment and quality (HSEQ) are all of the highest priority within the shipbuilding industry and within Royal Niestern Sander. They are decisive for the success and quality of our people and activities.
