Neptune began in Aalst, the Netherlands, in 1972 as a builder of luxury of luxury yachts. That activity was soon joined by the manufacture of workboats where the expertise gained from building yachts plus the culture of working to the highest standards and in partnership with its clients resulted in a level of quality that can be found in Neptune’s products to this day. Such was the success of the workboat division that, in 2001, the two activities were separated into Neptune, focusing on workboats, and Elling Luxury Yachts.
Over the years the company has expanded, gaining additional facilities in Hardinxveld and Groningen. However, the founders’ Dutch core values of quality and precision are still prevalent wherever the Neptune name is found.
Since the beginning our mission has been to build, maintain and modify vessels of all types so that they are safe, efficient and fit-for purpose. As part of that we are also dedicated to providing a service based on flexibility, cooperation, Dutch quality and the provision of short delivery times for the satisfaction of our customers. We achieve this by having both a highly-skilled and committed workforce and yards in convenient locations.
The scope of our services has expanded over time in response to the demand of our customers, and to workboats we have added the building of pontoons, high speed and offshore vessels of various types. In 2010 we started our successful repair, conversion and mobilisation services.
