In 1972, Neptune was founded in The Netherlands as a luxury yacht builder. After a few years, the family-owned company started manufacturing workboats next to the luxury yachts. The knowledge of shipbuilding, and the understanding of meeting the highest quality standards and customer demands, can be seen in every vessel being built by Neptune. The construction of workboats turned out to be a success, and in 2001, the family decided to focus on workboats. Yacht building has been separated from workboats, and the name was changed to Elling Luxury Yachts.
The company expanded over the years, from the location in Aalst, the Netherlands. Nowadays, Neptune has three locations, where their founders’ Dutch core values are still prevalent in every way.
It is our mission to build, repair, mobilize, convert, or refit your vessel to our high standards. The Neptune standard is based on flexibility, short delivery times, and Dutch high-quality. Our passion for the maritime industry and our skilled and committed team make sure your vessel is one of the best in class for your activities. Our shipyards in The Netherlands are within easy reach due to our direct connection with the Port of Rotterdam and Merwede waterways.
Neptune has developed from building workboats to a versatile builder of not only workboats but also offshore vessels, high speed vessels, and pontoons. Moreover, from 2010 onwards, Neptune also offers repair, conversion, and mobilization solutions.
