The roots of Hartman Seatrade date back to the year 1775. On 26 September 1775, “Jurjen Jans Hartman” son of Jan Lambertus Hartman was born. Both were recorded as “skipper”.  On this the base of Hartman Seatrade is established.

the 7th generation (Jan Hartman) took up the challenge to swap inland navigation for seafaring, as this happened later in life and with a large family we can say that this was a courageous step by a man of strong character, decades of effort and perseverance have resulted in a strong foundation for the 8th generation.


  • The company’s fleet consists of versatile and highly flexible multi-purpose vessels (MPP vessels) that are equipped with cranes and other specialized equipment to handle various types of cargo.
  • Hartman Seatrade is a family-owned and operated business, which allows the company to maintain a strong sense of tradition, values and customer focus.
  • The company’s commitment to sustainability is reflected in its continuous efforts to reduce its environmental impact, optimize its fleet operations, and promote sustainable and responsible business practices.


Hartman Seatrade boasts a commendable track record of progress and innovation. Even in challenging economic conditions, we have successfully constructed and operated new ships, delivering profitable results. Our vision and approach have led to successful outcomes, and we aim to expand our business gradually by introducing market-based and innovative vessels.

Sustainability remains at the forefront of our priorities, and we are dedicated to further reducing emissions. Our current fleet already exceeds mandatory Energy Efficiency Index requirements, and we are well-prepared to meet the upcoming phase 3 requirements in 2030.

Through our commitment to sustainability and innovation, we envision a promising future for both our business and the environment.

“Involvement, dedication, and trustworthiness are the pillars of our success, and the foundation of our unwavering commitment to excellence.”
