OUTFIT QUAY ROTTERDAM

Even though both De Hoop locations have a combined quay length of 450 metres, the shipyards have an additional 200m quay at their disposal in the Rotterdam harbour area on the Oostdijk. This location is mainly used to outfit the vessels, built in Lobith or Foxhol. This site is the ideal location for performing the last finishing touch and home base for sea trails.
