History of Hospes shipyard
We are a family business and a partner in water sports for over eighty years. In 1927 grandfather Klaas Hospes became captain of the port at the marina of Sneek.
His son, Ids Hospes, started a shipyard in 1932 at the Burgemeester de Hooppark, which is next to the marina of Sneek.
The next generation, son Klaas and his wife Cobie, took over the wheel of the company in 1979.
Nowadays they are joined by their son Ids, who will continue the family business.
