Our story begins in 1984 with the foundation of Van Cappellen Consultancy by Willem van Cappellen Sr. His gained knowledge at MARIN and Loggers as lead engineer and as founder of Rubber Design is the solid ground for our consultancy company, specialised in marine acoustics. Van Cappellen Consultancy offers its engineering services to the yachting industry, commercial vessels as well as other industries.

Innovation has always been important an added value to our services. In collaboration with shipyards we have been able to introduce innovative solutions like floating floors, the use of Bondal in engine rooms and lightweight insulation materials like melamine foam. These solutions are implemented in our noise and vibration control studies and allow us to meet the requirements for comfortable noise and vibration levels on board yachts.

We are a small but solid family company, where we work with our employees as a close-knit team characterised by an open atmosphere and short lines.

Today our consultancy company is proud to have worked on numerous motor and sailing yachts ranging from 20 to 160 meters. With this expertise we are the right partner to select for your noise and vibration control studies and sound solution products.
