Discover, explore and create your own journey

Lekker Boats - based in Sydney/Amsterdam - is the brainchild of industrial designer and entrepreneur Meindert Wolfraad, a Dutch-born Australian who initially began his venture with bicycles before diversifying his lifestyle portfolio into boating.

Launched in 2014

Lekker Boats originated in 2014 and launched two beautifully crafted boats in the form of the Damsko 750 and the larger Damsko 1000, both of which are also available with cabin. The two models follow the strict design criteria of Lekker through the use of premium materials and workmanship to ensure that the final result remains maintenance-free whilst satisfying the unique aesthetics. 

"I wanted to consider all of the practical aspects of boating in-and-around a busy harbour like Sydney, and make the driver experience as seamless as possible." adds founder Meindert Wolfraad.

 

We carefully select the best materials for our boats and through the use of our Dutch expertise, we are able to build the highest quality, maintenance-free and robust boats. Expect a strong piece of engineering, perfected for all types of water, maximizing driving and user experience in any conditions.

Make the water your playground

There really isn’t anything else on out there on the water that provides style, comfort, and exhilaration in one package like the Lekker Damsko does. A sports boat, with the luxury of a cruiser, and the capacity of much larger vessels will surely attract the attention of families, friends, and those seeking fun in the sun. Options like the cabin which feature beds and a toilet further expand the capabilities of the Damsko for overnighting, and staying out on the water longer with family and friends. There is nothing else quite like it on the market.

"The Damsko is a true modern day classic. Our primary focus in our continuous design process is to perfect our boats for all types of water, maximizing driving and user experience in any condition." adds founder Meindert Wolfraad.

One of the best and at the same time surprising aspects of the Damsko is its speed, it can have you flying offshore without a problem. It does of course also offer various smart practicalities and is designed with comfort and style in mind.

Our Modern Classic: The Damsko

Our team of masterminds combined their knowledge of the boating scene in Amsterdam and Australia. They incorporated the best of two worlds into one design. They paired the comfort and socializing aspect of the well know "sloep" design in Amsterdam with the striking power and durability of speedboats in Sydney. The outcome? A wolf in sheep's clothing. One of the most spectacular aspects of the Damsko is its hidden superpower. The design of the Damsko provides excellent handling and enables the boat to manoeuver with ease. The Damsko's turning circle is its own length, capable of making tight turns even at top speed. Due to the engine, it's easy to trim and race over the water. In short, this seaworthy vessel is incredibly easy to use. 

The Damsko range is available in a 750 edition, 1000 edition and is available in an open or cabin version. Newest gadgets are the integrated Anchor system and the soon to be introduced striking looking T-Top.   

Available Worldwide 

Lekker Boats started off by conquering the Dutch and Australian waters, organizing test days in both Amsterdam and Sydney. Instantly interested parties from all over the world started showing interest in the Damsko. As a result, Lekker Boats has established multiple dealers situated in the following countries; the United States, Spain, and Norway. If you’re interested in experiencing a Lekker Boat and you don’t reside in the locations mentioned above, we’re also able to arrange test days in France, Portugal, Czech Republic, Hungary, and Sweden. 

 

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter where you're located, because we deliver the Lekker Damsko right to your doorstep. That’s one of the perks of the Damsko being easily trailerable.
