The Van Wijk class is the new jus­ti­fia­bly “pri­de” of HABBEKE SHIPYARD’s buil­ding pro­gram. 4 ves­sels are orde­red by  Roy­al Nether­lands Sea Res­cue Insti­tu­ti­on KNRM The new Van Wijk class can res­cue up to 50 peo­p­le and has shown her worth and abi­li­ty in the dange­rous seas around The Nether­lands. In 2020 the design of the well known Valen­tijn class was modi­fied; by making the boats slightly lon­ger, a lar­ger work deck at the stern was cre­a­ted and the wheel­hou­se pro­vi­des more com­fort to the crew.

The Van Wijk class is desig­ned by W. de Vries Lentsch and Gaast­meer design

The­se ves­sels are built accor­ding to the standards and rules of Lloyds accor­ding the Grey boat code
