MarQuip, which manufactures superyacht exhaust systems in the Netherlands, has opened a new facility in Alblasserdam. The company said in a statement that it is focused on offering fully custom services while increasing its independence from sister company Discom.

“As a sales & engineering company, MarQuip will continue to work closely with our manufacturing partners to create the hardware we devise with our clients,” said sales manager Dennis Bravenboer in the statement. “The move enhances our ability to offer clients a truly bespoke service that reflects the demanding nature of the superyacht projects in which we are involved.”

The company recently has designed and manufactured IMO TIER III-certified exhaust systems and other projects. “Our new facility means we can respond quicker and make our overall service even better,” adds Bravenboer. “MarQuip can now take on more and bigger projects at the same time, optimising the interaction with yards, owners, management companies and captains to improve the quality of their exhaust systems.”
