Owner Arjan Koerts born in Velsen The Netherlands in 1971.

As a son of a tugboat owner, I grew up on and around tugs.
From a young age I had a passion for tugboats and for working with them.
With a ‘Master all ships’ license and fully stcw-certified, I started as a tug master in 1995 and continued to develop my interests and experiences in new sectors.

After 20 years of experience in almost every field a tug can operate in, I started the company KMS in 2011 and became a trainer in 2012.
I worked as a freelance captain for several training institutes in the Netherlands and Germany.
I worked as ‘on the job’ trainer and simulator trainer in counties in the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

For a list of possibilities I would like to refer you to our services page on this site.
