Willem Nieland Design

The Korvet range of aluminium motor yachts – capable of long range cruising under almost all conditions – provides the ultimate platform for engaging the sea and elements in complete safety and comfort. Willem Nieland – renown designer of prize winning yachts – combined his distinct style and innovative ideas to achieve a longer range at a higher speed than the traditional displacement trawler and cutter designs were capable of.

Different like no other

A yacht or vessel designed by Willem Nieland is different. Not for the sake of being different but because it wants to add to what already exists. Is innovation of classic and timeless designs an odd thing? Willem thinks not: “Knowing your classics and the ‘law and order’ of the sea is essential but at the same time it is imperative to keep an open mind to the dynamics of the world of yacht design and of course the wishes of the customer”.

Thus he aims to always achieve the utmost within the constraints of budget and water line. Creativity not only in design but also as the basis for down to earth ingenuity. Trendiness is allowed but never mainstream and only if it adds value. That is the Nieland difference.

Built for harsh conditions

Built in aluminium under the demanding CE-A category, our yachts are rugged, seaworthy and self supporting to brace harsh oceanic conditions, while at the same time provide the shallow draught needed for exploring inland waterways, tidal inlets or even dry out on a mudflat.

With Aluminium as our building material of choice, the Korvets are durable, strong and maintenance friendly. The hull and construction require no paint system as the Aluminium creates a protective oxide coating.
