Are you a dedicated interior builder who wants to work with the world’s most exclusive yachts?

We want to hear from you!

We are looking for an experienced Carpenter for our Interior Production Department. We need a refined interior builder who realises the most exclusive yacht interiors with attention, precision and craftsmanship.

  • What will you do?

    As a Carpenter in the Interior Production Department, you will build various parts of the yacht interior. You will work with the supplied work drawings and bill of materials following the briefing of your Foreman and Project Leader. You will be responsible for your project from A to Z – from drawing until it is mounted on board. No Heesen yacht design is the same, and everything is piece production, which means a great deal of versatility and daily technical challenges in this role. Weight is an important factor in all yacht builds. For this reason, we work with HPL finished with the most exclusive types of veneer.

    When working in the top tier of the yacht building industry, all interior projects have to meet the most stringent quality standards. Working independently, you will receive the freedom to work with attention, precision and concentration to create something unique. Attention to detail and a passion for craftsmanship is what defines Heesen employees. Each project offers a great sense of pride and accomplishment among the whole team as the yacht is completed and finally delivered.

  • Where will you work?

    The Interior Production Department in Winterswijk is responsible for the entire interior construction of the yacht. After a precise final check in Winterswijk, the interior components are transported to the shipyard in Oss, where they are mounted on board. Driven by craftsmanship, dedication and teamwork, we create yacht interiors of exceptional quality. This high level of quality is rare within the yacht building industry, and even rarer in other industries, requiring skill and precise attention to detail. Typical for the Interior Production and other departments in Winterswijk is a shared passion for craftsmanship and a focus on achieving the perfect end result. Employees enjoy direct and open communication and a pleasant sense of comradery amongst colleagues.

  • Who are we looking for?

    You are a professional with a passion for luxury interior building and the high level of craftsmanship involved in exclusive yacht projects. You have a high sense of quality, are work focused and always strive for perfection. You have a flexible attitude, and you can deal with pressure and stressful situations with ease. You are a team player with good communicative and social skills.

    Education and experience:

    • A completed VMBO-/MBO-degree in the field of ship interior construction, carpenter and/or machinal woodworker, or verifiable work experience.
    • Experience in finalising high-quality interiors with veneer, lacquer work, solid wood and HPL.
    • Knowledge of and experience working with woodworking machines.
  • What we offer

    At Heesen, the happiness of our employees is important to us. That’s why we offer all Heesen employees a job with responsibility, collegiality and appreciation. You will get all the space to further develop yourself and grow.
    Working at Heesen, you can expect the following attractive benefits:

    • A competitive salary.
    • Good travel reimbursement with unlimited kilometres.
    • Pension scheme.
    • Fitness subscription with 50% discount.
    • Collective health insurance.

    • Possibilities for development and education.
    • Active staff association organising fun trips, drinks and festivities.
