At home on the water

Our head office is in the Dutch province of Zeeland (‘sea country’) – a haven of watersports, long sandy beaches, sailing and outdoor activities.

Fresh air, no traffic jams, Zeeland is the perfect location for a great outdoor sporting lifestyle, affordable housing and still close to major centres. The twin cities Vlissingen and Middelburg offer excellent road and rail links, combined with the highest quality of life and the most sunshine hours in our country.

Zeeland, and notably Vlissingen, is the spiritual home of Dutch shipbuilding. The ground beneath our feet is steeped in a shipbuilding tradition that stretches back 700 years including the iconic Royal Schelde yard.
