Company history

The founder of Altena Yachting is Gerard Pols, who started his business as a hobby. He loved working with diesel engines and, deepening his knowledge in this field, he became interested in shipbuilding. In the end Pauls decided to build his own yacht.

Pauls' tiny shipyard was in the garden of his home and his wife and children were the first employees. He conceived of building a 9.5 metre yacht and spent all his free time on it to make his dreams come true with his own hands, but before launching the yacht a buyer was found and it was sold. The money raised from the sale of the yacht became the initial capital for Pauls, and so Altena Yachting began its existence in 1969.

Altena Yachting has now become a successful international yacht builder with a wide range of models and distributors worldwide.
