For many people, particularly in Germany, "Linssen" is synonymous with high-quality, Dutch steel yachts. Many of those who are looking to rent a genuinely good yacht in the Berlin / Brandenburg / Mecklenburg area would accept nothing other than a Linssen. And Linssen, quite rightly, has a good name.

But the keel is now also laid on noble, steel yachts in other parts of the Netherlands - e.g. at the small but worthy traditional boatyard in Sneek, Freesland, which is run by two brothers, Marcel and Sander Jetten.

We compare our Jetten 40 "Anna Karenina" with the Linssen 40.9, which can be rented from one of our competitor's in our region:

We believe that "Jetten Yachting" is on a par with Linssen, and, in terms of flexibility, the Jetten brothers are clearly a nose ahead: whilst the customer has practically no opportunity to make any decisions with the manufacturer during the construction of the GS 40.9, Jetten yachts are "semi-custom built", which means that, during construction, customers have a large say in terms of their design.

In this way, we were able to develop a boat with the Jetten yard that suited our region and would meet the needs of our guests. People of all sizes can sit comfortably and ergonomically when steering or writing at the desk while the electric sunroof can also be operated by those who are not big or strong. When the weather turns cooler, the double glazing remains clear and the underfloor heating provides cosy warmth.
