Our roots and more...

The roots of Hartman can be traced back to the year 1775. On 26 September 1775, "Jurjen Jans Hartman" son of Jan Lambertus Hartman was born, both being recorded as "skipper". From this the base of Hartman Seatrade is established...

After seven generations of skipper-owners, we currently have generation number eight of skipper-owners, better known as the Dutch "Hartman brothers".

The Hartman brothers run there own fleet of multipurpose vessels, are still involved and sailing there own vessels as well as working with their crews. Thrustworthy.
