Hi, we are Van Storm!

Your career in the Dutch maritime industry

With a clear focus on the Dutch yacht- and shipbuilding, offshore and maritime sectors, we are specialists in the recruitment, contracting, and relocation of engineers from all over the world.

    Yacht Building

    The Netherlands definitely deserves to be ranked among the top yacht builders in the world, with its clear focus on sailing, motor, and custom-built mega yachts up to 127m in length.
    Their undeniable qualities are state-of-the-art design, superb technical quality, and a long maritime history combined with innovation and the development of sustainable solutions.
    That’s why, every year, hundreds of international clients choose Dutch shipyards to help them build their dream yachts.


    The Dutch shipbuilding industry is particularly strong in developing, creating, and servicing a variety of specialty vessels for dredging, offshore work, or for instance defense purposes, but also delivers a vast variety of inland, passenger, or transportation ships in a highly efficient way.
    Clustered in our small country the yards, equipment providers, and engineering offices drive innovation and the development of new concepts and solutions.


    From floating energy solution providers to offshore installation contractors, the Netherlands has a high-density and broad range of offshore-related companies.
    The Dutch offshore industry builds on a lasting history of record-breaking achievements in lifting and installing, as well as decommissioning and operating in the harshest conditions, and is at the forefront of the development of specialized equipment, products, and sustainable solutions.
