It is Navitec’s mission to assist crew, owners, charterers and managers in maintaining operability of their vessels in the best possible way.

In order to achieve this, we employ highly skilled labour and Ship Repair Managers with experience at sea and in ship repair.

With our Managing Director, Captain Joris Van de Water, an experienced Master Mariner and former Senior Technical Superintendent, at the helm, we are aware of all the stakeholders and their respective requirements involved.


Ever growing, moving forward

Founded in the late seventies as a welding shop aimed at the maritime industry, Navitec has developed, grown and diversified.

We currently employ around 50 people, run a fleet of over 30 vehicles and cover all ports within a day’s ride from our workshop.

We are proud to serve almost all major shipping companies as loyal customers and today we are renowned for our flexibility, quick response times and pragmatic, solution oriented approach.

They help maintain our focus and incite us to continuously improve our organisation and our services.

Our successful QHSE management system is just one of the exploits of this urge forward.

Sustainable base

Since 2019, Navitec is part of H2O Group.

H2O Group is a group of 10 companies connected by H2O or water.

Through our offices in Burcht, Bazel & Antwerp, we operate from a central and strategical position in Flanders. We want to unburden our customers in a rapidly changing world with focus on sustainability and corporate wellbeing.
