Are you a driven engineer looking for career opportunities in the highest level of the yacht building industry?

We want to hear from you!

We are looking for a talented Draftsman for our Interior Engineering Department. We need a diligent engineer with experience in the construction of high-quality interiors on luxury yachts.

  • What will you do?

    As a Draftsman in our Interior Engineering Department, you will be responsible for the crucial technical design of the interiors of our yachts. You will convert the drawings of the construction hull to working drawings for the interior carpentry, as well as translate the drawings and visuals of the designer to layout drawings. You will work with a challenging puzzle to define each room on board in detail, also accounting for electro and isolation plans. You will create air treatment drawings according to the relevant regulations. You will primarily design in AutoCAD at first, but you will have the opportunity to receive education to learn how to draw in 3D. Your clear and well thought out work drawings will ensure an efficient production process. You will receive a great deal of job satisfaction due to the high-quality product. Heesen yachts exceed standards because of the quality of their design, engineering and finishing. Furthermore, every yacht is unique, offering diversity and variation each day.

  • Where will you work?

    The Interior Engineering Department in Winterswijk creates the drawings, project and purchasing instructions of the yacht interiors which provide the interior and equipment 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 more unique in other industries, requiring skill and precise attention to detail. A characteristic of the Interior Engineering and other departments in Winterswijk is a shared passion for craftsmanship and a focus on achieving the perfect result. Employees enjoy direct and open communication and a pleasant sense of comradery amongst colleagues.

  • Who are we looking for?

    You are ambitious and eager to develop your skills as an engineer. You have experience in the interior building industry as well as sufficient knowledge of materials. Your passion for luxury yachts means that you like to stay up to date with the latest yacht engineering know-how, which you can implement in your work. You are flexible and stress-resistant. Your problem-solving abilities are impeccable and you have strong analytical skills. Within your team, you will be a strong and decisive character able to communicate efficiently and directly. The fact that you work tightly on schedules is self-evident to you.

    Education and experience:

    • MBO-degree in interior building/carpentry, combined with 5 years’ relevant work experience.
    • A comprehensive level of English (both oral and written).
    • Sufficient knowledge of AutoCAD.
  • 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.
