My great uncle, Abraham Vis lived in Waddinxveen, Netherlands and was a shipbuilder. He lived from 1879-1966 and his family’s company apparently built a yacht for the Dutch Royal family. I am curious if anyone might know what the name of that company would have been?

De Groene Draeck, a Dutch royal yacht that was presented to Princess Beatrix on her 18th birthday, is said to have been built in Amsterdam by G. de Vries Lentsch. That would be right for the time span, but does anyone know of any other Dutch royal yacht? She's the only one I've heard of.
