Van Cappellen Consultancy has been active in the maritime sector as an engineering company since 1984, providing specialist services in noise and vibration control for luxury yachts and merchant vessels. The founder, Willem van Cappellen, a former Dutch pleasure craft designer gained his knowledge in vibration control as lead engineer at MARIN, Loggers and Rubber Design. When asked by Feadship and Royal Huisman in the early 80’s, he extended his knowledge to yacht acoustics and as such formed the basis for the company as it is today.


Brenta 80 DC

Michael Schmidt Yachtbau was proud to use Van Cappellen Consultancy as the noise and vibration consultant on the Brenta 80 DC.


Boatbuilding powerhouse Michael Schmidt has teamed up with acclaimed naval architect Lorenzo Argento of Brenta Designs and eminent architect Sir David Chipperfield to create a sailing superyacht, the Brenta 80 DC.
Schmidt is calling the 80-foot yacht an accumulation of his four decades in the sailing industry. “I am building a boat without concession, just beautiful and suiting me. I want it simple, functional and fast. A special blend of old and new" the experienced sailor explains. It will be launched in spring 2015, the first in a series of luxury yachts from his new venture Michael Schmidt Yachtbau.
