Damen Shipyards Den Helder

Shiprepair since 1923

Welcome to our shiprepair yard in Den Helder

Damen Shiprepair Den Helder (DSDH) is situated near the Den Helder offshore hub and the largest naval base in the Netherlands. Our history dates back to 1923, so we can offer you a proven track record of expertise and a highly experienced workforce. We enjoy a flat organisational structure to keep the lines of communication as short as possible. This allows us to move fast and offer every client the most personal service possible.

We never say no, and with our own afloat repair teams we have a true 24/7 mentality for harbour repairs. Additionally, we have in-house engineering capabilities and trusted subcontractors available at our yard. We are able to accommodate vessels up to 115 metres in length. Besides Den Helder, we are also represented in Oudeschild on the island of Texel.
