Wim Van Dun

He knows the Mediterranean

As a captain on luxury yachts he explored the Med’s shores and worked extensively with people from many different countries.
In this way, he discovered that the best craftsmen are found in Tuzla, Bodrum and Antalya. In these old cities, he found traditional craftsmanship gathered over several generations. This in combination with a drive to innovate and a dedication to deliver the highest quality, made Turkey the ideal location to do refit, repair and improvement work on the modern-classic yachts he sailed.
His love for technical and organizational skills led him to pursue a further career in commercial and off shore shipping. But now, Capt. Wim Van Dun is back in his beloved Mediterranean to guide other captains and ship owners in their building and refit projects.

Capt. Wim Van Dun

What we do

We guide yacht owners and crew through refit and building projects in the eastern Mediterranean.

The steps from request to refit or new build project: Steps before signing

Eastern craftsmanship to offer.

We have selected some shipyards with a good reputation and a long tradition and assessed the quality they deliver, their ability to keep timing and their economical reliability.
Rather than competitors, the yards we represent are complementary to each other as such they combine their knowledge and back each other up if needed.

Western follow up: Our assessment system

We have developed a follow up tool named QTFA to do Quality, Time and Finance Assessment. This process starts before the contract is signed and ends after the satisfactory sea trials.
