In 2004 we started a sole proprietorship. The Vigilia, which was back then still 110 meters by 10.50 meters width and 2508 tons. Soon the challenge became bigger and we bought our first ship (135 meters by 11.45 meters width and 3935 tons). This ship is currently known under the name Vigilia II (2). Our current ship (Vigilia) was build in China (2007) and the final preperations were done by Dolderman Dordrecht (2008). Both ships are equiped with hatches so they can be deployed in every situation.
Crew and coverage
I navigate together with my wife and kids onboard the Vigilia. The rest of our onboard crew consists out Dutch personel; captains, mates and apprentice sailors.
Our coverage runs through all major waterways in Europe ranging from the North Sea to the Black Sea and the Wadden Sea almost to the Lake Constance.
So we are emplyable in a very large area. On the left you can see some examples of countries which belong to our coverage.
Below you will find an extensive map of almost all waterways within Europe. You can click on the image below for a large magnifcation. Our thanks go out to Bureau Voorlichting Binnenvaart for providing this image.
