Experience

Current position:

 Master / SDPO @ Dutch Mariner Offshore Services (independent contractor)

I’m currently available for new challenges & opportunities.

As Master/SDPO , as Chief officer/SDPO or as SDPO. I’m also open to other possibilities: Client representative, Consultant, Auditor, Newbuild Supervisor, Vessel Inspections, you name it.
For short trips, longer trips, (semi-)permanent contract, on dayrate, (almost) anywhere in the world. Flexibility is my keyword here, it’s upto you to just add water (and a ship).

I’m very happy to discuss with you how we can be of mutual assistance: please see the Contact page to get in touch with me.
