Company profile

Acta Marine is a worldwide market leader in the operation of coastal and shallow draft workboats.


Our company was established in 1970 and today we own over fifty different vessels, which are used for projects of a large variety of clients. The main focus is on shallow water projects, although most of the vessels can also be used in deepsea waters. Acta Marine specializes in cable burial and cable or pipeline remedial burial projects in coastal and shallow waters, and is the innovator of the DP Multicats. These specialties enable us to offer the best and most effective solutions to our clients in the Dredging & Marine Construction, Oil & Gas and Offshore Wind industry. 


Acta Marine started out as a family-owned business. Our focus is on long-lasting relationships with clients and long-term continuity of our services. We therefore continuously invest in the relationships with clients, the maintenance of the fleet, and training of personnel. We truly believe our employees are the key our success; they are crucial for our reputation as a professional and reliable maritime service provider. 


Acta Marine was founded over forty years ago. Years of knowledge and experience are now used to further develop our maritime services. This is how Acta Marine is able to maintain its position as a worldwide market leader for coastal and shallow waters.

Core values

Acta Marine is the Dutch maritime service provider that operates workboats for worldwide coastal and shallow waters. A considerable number of these vessels have an operational draft of less than two meters. The ability to operate in both coastal and shallow waters is one of the unique features of our vessels. The versatile and multifunctional DP1 workboats are also of distinctive value to Acta Marine.



Acta Marine supports clients with qualitative, innovative, reliable and efficient solutions in order to cooperate on projects according to the industry's highest safety standards. Sustainable relationships with clients are of great importance to us. They enable us to support the the long-term continuity of our maritime services.


Acta Marine believes that the growth of the global population combined with the ongoing increase in trade will lead to further development of worldwide coastal areas. For this purpose we cooperate with local partners to focus on projects in different parts of the world, and support our clients during the planning, implementation and maintenance phases of their global projects. Our fleet and crew know how to anticipate upon these ongoing requirements. Furthermore, we expect the European Offshore Wind industry to demonstrate an increasing demand for Acta Marine workboats, where ongoing investments will be taking place.
