The Dutch workboat industry is thriving and very dynamic, Dutch shipyards are considered to be reliable and one of the best suppliers of high-quality workboats. Therefore it is appropriate to make this industry the star of the fourth edition of Maritime Holland, looking at innovations and sustainability in that industry, among others.


In line with this issue’s special, Ard-Jan Kooren, CEO of Kotug, provided the guest column, Pieter van Oossanen of Van Oossanen Naval Architects features in ‘The vision of…’ and Sybrand Hassing explains how Holland America Line embraces sustainability in ‘Thinking green’. Next to that, readers can expect three vessel reviews: shoalbuster Barney, motor yacht Alive and seismic research support vessel Tess.
