Since 1972 and the meaning of “Da Capo”

Since 1972 is Da Capo BV, the specialist in ship interior and interior solutions. Da Capo BV has a lot of experience with passenger ships (cruise ships), transport vessels and offices/houses. Projects are mostly turn key, so every challenge is welcome.

 Their office is situated in Boven Hardinxveld directly on the river Merwede. This means that ships till 135 meters can moor directly at their workplace on the quay.

A big storage space, modern tools and the latest machines and techniques ensure top products just the way our clients like it!

Da Capo means from the beginning, we can help you the whole process. From the first advice till the design and the total build.

Our core values are;

  • Craftsmanship
  • Dedication
  • Creativity

Since when are you cooperating with Artiga, and how did you get in contact with them?

We started working with Artiga in 2019. Almost from the beginning of Artiga. They called us with their story, and we invited them to get to know each other. In first, we were a little skeptical, like is this really the case? And are there still companies with skilled carpenters in our business? We started with a team of 2 and in a couple of months we had a team of 16 carpenters at several projects.

How is the cooperation with Artiga?

Overall, we are happy with them. From April 2020 we did not work anymore with each other because of less work due Covid-19, this is killing for the cruise shipbuilding industry. There was no new build or refit work, it was all postponed. But currently we started up a new project (river cruise vessel) so we want the teams back in September and make great things again!

 What do you think of Artiga?

A professional organization, they do what ever they can to keep their promises, and last but not least it is always fun. So we can build on them, and our intentions are that we are going to work with them for a long time.
