Rienk de Boer

Operations

Rienk started his career as Naval Architect at a large salvage company, being involved in large number of complex and high profile projects. After 8 years and looking for a change he spend a few years in the yacht building as well as the survey industry working in a variety of roles. During those “office jobs” he started to miss the salvage industry more and more, whereas he decided to return in 2021.

When not at work he’s out on the water sailing, attempting some wall climbing, running, moutainbiking and during the winter you can find him on the ice ring or on a snowy mountain. When the weather is not favourable he might show up as “a very unproffesional DJ without any fans” in an empty living room.
