Y're welcome.
They are in IJmuiden a bit up north on the Northsea cost. At the beginning of the canal to Amstersdam.
Have you seen this one?

TP Marine makes extremely strong boats, mostly all of them made for proffesional use.

I have sailed them last month during the Volvo Ocean race.
Very stabil and easy to handle boats with servo steering and throttle.

With or without 14 people on board she took off like a rocket with a single Volvo D6/350hp duoprop turbodiesel.

They are busy making a new model 11.8/3.8 meter with twin diesel setup and with a extreme deepV.

It's a 10 minute walk from the ferrydeparture in IJmuiden
Sure worth making a visit.

My daughter and her fiance are out at Ijmuden skippering boats on that wind farm. They have TP ribs as their fast support boats (when the weather allows it!). They seem fairly impressed with them (but not as much as their 50ft catamarans with all mod cons on board!), but I am out there in sept visiting them (and the boat show there )and may know more about the ribs after that

TP Marine used to have their ribs made in Poland. Not so long ago perhaps even early this year TP Marine and the Polish partner ceased all co-operation and TP Marine now get their ribs from another source perhaps they even make them in house.
The company which used to made the ribs for TP Marine is called Techno Marine and you can look them up on www.technomarine.pl
