We recommend you to have a look into this rare and very interesting book about the history of Dutch fleet. The publication opens with some background on the glorious history followed with the information about today's dredging fleet. Then the main portion of the volume comes, dealing with the merchant fleet and ship construction including stamina and special ship types, as well as the maritime equipment.
One separate section of the publication has been devoted to the rapidly developing offshore industry. Long story short, the book will be of practical use to the people with the interest in the past and present of the maritime shipping and offshore industry in the region. The author of the book aimed to explain to the readers the unique features offered by the Netherlands in the maritime sector of the industry.
This is quite an easy reading though the research conducted by the author was very deep and extensive. This is not a book for professionals and scientists but rather for the general readers willing to know more about the Netherlands and the fleet serving there. Taking this into account, the volume can be recommended to everyone and even to the people outside maritime and offshore industry.
