Period 1960 – present


Three generations of Kramer
In the late 60s, Adriaan’s sons (and current associates) Kees and Johan joined the family business. Hence three generations of Kramer were active and they took on larger projects. Inland shipping companies, sailing charters, towing services and water construction companies found their way towards the peninsula in Zaandam. The repair and overhaul of dredgers regularly took place as well, and the trade of machines and their parts continued to expand. With the purchase of a stem/stern dock and a crane in the 80s, the company acquired more and more the character of a shipyard. From that time on, Kramer has been able to carry out the most diverse operations within the ship repair and overhaul business.

The present-day Kramer company
Kramer Ship Repair & Engineering Work keeps developing and the location of the yard has been developed to its own island of approximately 1 hectare. In 2009 a new port was constructed, which holds twenty boxes for vessels with a length up to 30 meters. In the 95 years of existence, the Kramer company developed expertise and always maintained the authentic appearance. It is a place people from both professional and recreational boating like to visit.
