A. Vuyk & Zonen, Capelle a/d IJssel, Netherlands

Shipbuilder A. Vuyk & Zonen was founded in 1872 in Capelle aan de IJssel, the Netherlands. Initially this yard only produced wooden inland vessels but moving into larger vessels later. However, after the flooding of parts of the Netherlands in 1953 locks were built impacting the production. Combined with increased foreign (Japanese) competition the company ran into financial difficulties. For a short while the company was supported by the Dutch government but eventually in 1979 it ceased to trade. Some of its staff moved to the yard across the river: Van der Giessen - De Noord.
