DE HOOP HOISTS FLAG FOR NEW SPIDO ORDER
Foxhol, 18/04/2018 – Today we have proudly hoisted the flag for a new build order for Spido, the lead day-passenger company from Rotterdam. During the last year De Hoop and Spido teams have closely worked together. To design a next generation day passenger vessel with a modern Spido-look De Hoop has cooperated with yacht designer Cor D. Rover. Spido and De Hoop have a long relationship whereby De Hoop has designed and built three vessels for them in the past; the Marco Polo (1995), the Vasco da Gama (1998) and the Abel Tasman (2000). This new ship is intended as a birthday present, as the Spido company will celebrate its 100 year existence next year. Coincidentally, Shipyard De Hoop has its 130 year anniversary next year and also for the yard it feels as a (birthday) present.
