From a simple idea to an internationally renowned brand

One thing connects the three men behind Cruising Home: a passion for life on the water. A passion that led to the founding of CRUISING HOME in 2013, a 100% subsidiary of the SRF shipyard in Harlingen, Netherlands, which has been constructing tailor-made steel vessels for customers from across the world for over 40 years.  


Marco Brattinga – the construction of your Cruising Home is in his expert hands

Marco Brattinga has been a project manager at the SRF shipyard since 2015. He will support the build of your mobile or stationary CRUISNG HOME, from planning to delivery. He is in close contact with Rolf Gast and Olivier van Meer. Marco Brattinga is already looking forward to meeting you in person during the build phase in Harlingen.
