Erik has been employed by De Vries Makkum as manager of the refit team. This team managed the entire refit of MY Sultana. This project came to the yard in Makkum in a half-finished condition, together with the masters and students of the in-house craftsman school we have turned this Yacht into a full worthy member of the Feadship heritage fleet.

Erik has been employed by De Vries Makkum as manager of the refit team. This team managed the entire refit of MY Serena. This special project was executed with great care by a unique team of professional master shipbuilders and their students. Serena was originally built in 1964 as one of a series specially designed by mr. Carlo Riva! The vessel was entirely rebuilt, with nothing to remain untouched. Since the refit the yacht is more extensively used then lots of mega yachts will be in their entire life…

During the employment by De Vries Makkum Erik has coordinated the outfitting works for MY Ocean Victory during her last two weeks of completion.

MY Musahi and sistership Fountainhead had several innovation projects like the Bow- and stern thruster RIM-Drives by Voith propulsion systems, LED lighting systems and very innovative double curved windows. Besides managing these innovations Erik coordinated the production outfitting of MY Musashi during his employment by De Vries Makkum.

Together with the Feadship Sales team, Erik (as manager New Projects for De Vries Makkum) has developed the specification and budget of Motoryacht Madame Gu and managed the pre-design process together with Feadship’s De Voogt Naval Architects. The yacht is one of the most innovative yachts in the world. Important developments are: the outside RGB lighting systems, the 4-engine-in-2-shafts propulsion giving the 99 meter yachts a comfortable speed of well over 20 knots, the helicopter platform lift, etc.

Motoryacht Tommy. We have done the entire project management for the new build of this yacht. This aluminium yacht is a one of a kind for its size. It is a mega-yacht in every aspect but its size. With twin MAN powered waterjets, she reaches speeds over 35 knots. The noise levels on board are exceptionally low, even at these high speeds. The interior is made to the highest standards in the megayacht industry, it was a challenge to get these techniques to work in a yacht of 18 meters long with lightweight materials.

Erik has been employed by De Vries Makkum as manager of the refit team. This team managed the entire refit of MY Odyssey, which was lengthened over all decks, had a full interior refit, a new fairing- & paintjob and a technical update. This 9 months extensive refit took place in The Netherlands with the talented team of Feadship’s De Vries Scheepsbouw Makkum.


For Marieholm we developed their 49 model and managed the production for a period of one year.

Motoryacht Revolution. For this design we have managed the entire development which has been performed in close cooperation with the design team from Vripack. This innovative yacht comprises some high-tech developments that have never been seen on yachts of similar size. Some examples are: a full hybrid propulsion with specially developed propulsion pods, a mooring system without mooring lines, highly sophisticated LED lighting systems, etc.
MV Tango a stunning 78 meter motoryacht built by Feadship – Van Lent in De Kaag, The Netehrlands. This mega yacht is one example of the numerous Van Lent projects that G&G participates in with their Aluminium Construction craftsman. Maritime Projects is supporting G&G Yachtbuilding with all commercial activities.
The GTT115 from Dynamiq yachts built in Italy. This yacht is a one of a kind design in terms of looks and naval architecture. With the Fast Displacment Hull Form from Van Oossaanen Naval Architects, this vessel has a very low fuel-consumption and high comfort levels. Due to the futuristic design with lots of forms and shapes, it was not very easy for the hull builders. However, the result was stunning and the project was finished in only 6 months building time. On behalf of G&G we have negotiated the contract for the hull construction and managed the commercial parts of project management during the project.
Aston Martin AM37. Quintessence Yachts is the official builder of the Aston Martin Powerboats. Maritime Projects have been asked to improve on the product development of the vessel. For the recently launched AM 37 we are monitoring their production schedule and product quality, we are looking into the production processes they follow and we advise on how to adopt these to more serial-production oriented ones. The AM37 itself is one of the most stunning yachts on the market today, it is 37 feet of absolute pleasure on the water and with this project the customers are more than certain of an arrival in Style, Bond-Style.
