Derk Bonsink and his company Bonsink Yacht Painters have a longtime reputation as one of the best in the field. A true water sports enthusiast, Bonsink has spent most of his life on the water. However, he wanted to put his knowledge and passion for boats to a better use. So the time came to start building yachts. His first prototype was the Serious Yachts 13.80, a more than average motorboat. Next he began the design for a Serious Yachts Gently 57’, inspired on Bonsink’s own yacht Thalassa, a 1975 Bowman Trawler that underwent a complete refit by Bonsink in 2004 (see maintenance & refit). Eventually he first developed a smaller version of the Gently 57’, the well-received Gently 36’, which immediately earned Serious Yachts a nomination for Motor Yacht of the Year in 2009.
