One of Amsterdam's oldest shipyards has known a turbulent history. Shipyard 't Kromhout, established in 1757, is a living museum which still has an active repair yard. It's one of the oldest yards in Amsterdam and it was there when the construction of ships changed from wood to steel. You'll find the oldest remaining steam winch here, and ships still lie on the shipway. Some unique historic ship motors are exhibited in the former factory building: one of them is the Kromhout 12 hp oil motor. On the "Mallenzolder" you can see a slideshow covering the history of the shipyard.
