Due to an increasing demand for the rental of maritime equipment TABmarine started a rental service. For the first project we purchased a series of 3000 kg LRs approved so called ‘Flipper type’ Mooring Anchors which are currently rented out  for a few Months.
If your company is interested in renting all kind of maritime equipment feel free to contact us, we are open for renting out barges, anchors, roller fairleads , pneumatic fenders and based on your demand all other type of maritime hardware products. At the moment we also have a big number of Stevshark Rex 2000kg and Stevshark Stevpris 5000kg anchors available for both sale and rental. Feel free to send us an email: 

Dutch designed and built shallow-draft workboat tailored to local African needs
Due to TABmarine’s knowledge of the African market and its experience with intercontinental shipbuilding and equipment manufacturing projects, an African client ordered a workboat in 2021. Tailored to the client’s needs, the work barge has been designed to be truly multi-purpose and able to sail in very shallow waters. Note that TABmarine delivered the vessel six weeks ahead of schedule.
The client wanted TABmarine to design and build a self-propelled, ultra-shallow draft work barge to operate at and near the company’s industrial facilities in various roles. And that is exactly what the vessel offers. It is currently being used for maintenance works, transportation (ferry services), supply duties , buoy laying, anchor handling and even waste collection.
Dutch design, African assets
TABmarine designs and builds a wide range of tugs, workboats, pontoons and industrial barges. In addition, the company delivers tailor-made craft, esp. for multi-purpose use in ports and harbours. These vessels are all designed in close collaboration with clients worldwide and built to proven Dutch quality standards.

See the workboat’s first trip here!

One of TABmarine’s returning customers requested the delivery of 4 pieces of 70-tonnes roller fairleads, 4 mooring anchors (ranging from 2500-3000 kg) and 4 anchor buoy’s. Delivering the fairleads, anchors and buoys from stock allowed the owner to start their project immediately.
For the same project we also delivered several lashing parts, e.g. twist locks and base plates; all fast and from stock.


Today, June 1st, we celebrate our fourth birthday. Since TABmarine was established in 2018, we have partnered with an increasing customer base for which we design, build, deliver and broker newbuilds, second-hand vessels and marine equipment.
Today, we want to thank you, our customers and suppliers, for your trust and cooperation. We are proud and thankful to have handled so many projects with you!


On March 24, the first steel for the ultra-shallow draft workboat has been cut. Mrs. Sidi de Kok ceremonially pushed the button of the cutting machine, formally starting the building process. The hull of the barge will be built in cooperation with Dutch Steel Works. 

TABmarine handled a sales & purchase deal of a small workboat between two Dutch companies. This versatile workboat will be refurbished and used as a line-handler/crew boat in the rental fleet of the buyer.

Need to buy or rent a workboat (incl. this very line-handler)? Or interested in our brokering services? Feel free to  contact us.

An overseas customer ordered a custom-made newbuild vessel: an ultra-shallow draft self-propelled workboat. The vessel will be built and outfitted in the Netherlands. Scheduled delivery is August 2022.

In summer 2021 TABmarine booked a great variety of orders for marine equipment. Orders included several types of steel hatches for a Crane Barge refurbishing project, a full container of rubber fenders, manholes, lashing equipment and a series of pneumatic tire net fenders (see photo). All orders were delivered on time and within budget.  

This spring we served our customers as usual despite some challenges we faced with our container shipments from Asia to Europe. Availability of containers and vessels was low and the price level came to an absurd height, shipment (read delivery) times very uncertain. All together not ideal for our business. In between managing the regular business TABmarine moved to a new office per May 1 st 2021, the new address can be found at this website. Last but not least TABmarine celebrated her 3rd anniversary June 1 st 2021. Young but going strong!

After the handing over of barge Maja 11 in the first half of January, this month TABmarine handed over 2 new built barges to Osprey Maritime Ltd., a UK headquartered major player in the field of engineering, logistics and heavy transport. Osprey Maritime Ltd. is operating barges, transport and heavy lifting equipment all over the world and is known as a turn key solution provider. The two sister barges, Osprey Bouwer and Osprey Fabrique, has been specifically designed to fit Osprey’s versatile fleet and are a welcome addition in the scheduled growth. Both Length, height and beam as well as the high deck strength of the barges give a lot of opportunities to operate the barges for all kind of transport and civil works in the most harsh conditions. 

TABmarine received the order for this newbuild’s in March 2020 and ex-yard China delivery was mid-November 2020. The barges were loaded November 17th 2020 and the barges arrived in Rotterdam the 2 nd of January 2021. After some touch up- and installation works the barges have been handed over, within agreed budget, to Osprey Maritime Ltd. more than 2 Months ahead of schedule.

In the first half of January TABmarine handed over a new built barge to Maja Stevedoring, an Amsterdam based stevedoring company operating all around the world. The barge ‘MAJA 11’ has been specifically designed to fit to Maja’s transshipment barge Enterprise. Both Length, height and beam as well as the shape of the barge makes the operation of Maja Stevedoring smooth and safe and on top of it the spill of cargo into the water surface will be reduced to zero. Materials which in the past fell into the water where useless and a loss as well as recovery costs are high. Cargo which now will end up at the Maja 11 can be taken away by the cranes and will be delivered as valuable cargo. 

TABmarine received the order for this newbuilt in July 2020 and ex-yard China delivery was mid-November. The shipment of the barge on SAL’s Hilke went smooth and after loading on November 18 thHilke arrived in Rotterdam the 2 nd of January 2021 after she sheltered for a storm for 5 days at Vigo. After a small touch up and installation of the winches and some small equipment the barge has been handed over, within agreed budget, to Maja Stevedoring 2,5 Month ahead of schedule.

The barge dimensions are 15 meters in length, 19 meters width and 2 meters in height and will be used as a header/spill barge. Transshipment operations in harbors can be very polluting and by using this barge the spill of cargo into the water will be minimized. The barge is designed according the Dutch Inland Waterway rules and will be delivered Q1-2021. The barge will be equipped with a rubber fender system, two coupling winches and one emergency drop-anchor with quick release hook. Next to the barge order Maja placed an order for the delivery of several emergency-drop anchor frames, complete with deck-assembly system, anchor and quick release system.
