Yanmar Names First ‘Flagship Store’


Yanmar Marine International said Abma’s Jachtwerf is the first dealership to be named an official Yanmar Flagship Store.

The strategic model store in the Netherlands is designed to showcase the Yanmar marine brand, the company said in a statement. It is located within a main sailing hub in Friesland and is close to Yanmar Europe in Almere.

“The store looks beautiful, and customers are delighted when they enter and see what we present regarding Yanmar engines, parts, know-how and overall experience,” said Lars Walta, Abma’s Jachtwerf director and co-owner. “We have increased our stock in parts and engines massively to meet the demand.”

Abma’s Jachtwerf specializes in diesel technology, installation and maintenance. It has been a Yanmar dealer for more than 50 years.
