The boatyard and harbor is specialized in the restoration and conversion of classic wooden boats and is perfectly situated at the water in Aalsmeer. The yard is run with a lot of passion by Helmuth and Roy Harting.
With a background as prominent ship carpenter at De Vries in Aalsmeer, Helmuth decided to start his own restoration-yard and harbour in 1997. In the meantime we work with a team of very young, but certainly ambitious, driven and experienced specialists.
WoodenClassics Harting V.O.F. has a solid reputation in the full restoration of classic wooden boats, with it’s focus on mahogany motorboats like Riva, Chris-Craft and Boesch. Our yard has a perfect workshop, the right cranes and is well equipped for divergent tasks . Besides the yard, we also own a harbor and provide shelter for the lay-up period.
Over the years we have restored a lot of Riva's, from Florida's to Aquarama Specials. Besides we further specialized ourseleves in the full restoration of your Riva in all it's glory and details. The typical (and for us certainly recognizable and realisable ) activities contain the replacement of the hull, decks and even re-veneer of the hull with massive mahony.
