Urk is a maritime town to its core! For the people of Urk, a long tradition of fishing has become so much a part of their DNA that in the end, they have fused with it. It’s hardly surprising then that its hard-working inhabitants have some remarkable maritime characteristics. The thousand-year-old fishing village on the coast of what used to be the Zuiderzee is justly proud of its title of the maritime centre of Western Europe. The choice of companies and service providers in the shipbuilding and maritime industries is generous to say the least. Hull builders, painters, carpenters, fitters, electrical engineers, survey and crewing, communications and ICT, and they come in all shapes and sizes! So what’s the secret? Urk Maritime is the alliance of all these marine specialists.
