Distinctive quality

We distinguish ourselves by offering high-quality service. The guarantee for this quality starts with the basics: a well designed and built ship that is well maintained.

Safe voyages

The quality of the ships and maintenance run through the generations as a common thread. On average, the ships that have been owned or managed by us are operational for 38 years! Presently, some ships are still sailing being 45 years old!

The Holwerda fleet throughout the years

For the Holwerda family, the management of ships started when Einte Holwerda bought the sea tjalk ‘De Vier Gebroeders’ in 1889. Over the years, many ships were built or purchased and we managed ships of third parties.

Below, we provide an overview of the ships managed by the Holwerda family.
