Barbara De Angelis (Naval Architect, 3 years at Van Oossanen):

Working at Van Oossanen is a source of inspiration. The office is not only a place to work but also a place where people from different countries and different backgrounds are sharing the same passion: the sea.

The team at Van Oossanen is like an orchestra, everyone plays their own instrument, having their own knowledge, sharing ideas, developing, researching, discussing solutions and new possibilities. And the conductors Piet, Perry and Niels are always able to keep the final result at the top level thanks to their experience. We work together in harmony, that is the secret.

At Van Oossanen every day is different, every day is a step forward, every day is a challenge.’
