July 19th 2013: Claasen Shipyards and Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology organised the opening of this year’s Yacht Valley Press Tour. This annual event brings together journalists from around the world, who are invited by the Holland Yachting Group to look around the top yards and suppliers in the Netherlands. During their visits the journalists are given the latest news by the companies participating in the tour.
The opening started with a presentation in the seventeenth-century Vleethuis building on the Claasen Shipyards premises, once used for storage of supplies, harpoons and other whaling equipment. Henk Brouwer presented the activities of Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology to the journalists, and was followed by a presentation from Claasen Shipyards. The informative afternoon concluded with a delicious lunch in the garden next to the Vleethuis.
