Welcome to Nederlandse Vereniging van Kapiteins ter Koopvaardij

The Dutch Association of Captains of the Merchant Navy (Nederlandse Vereniging van Kapiteins ter Koopvaardij (abbreviated to NVKK)) has been committed to the captain since 1943. For his or her position in general, but also for the individual captain, when there is reason to do so.

The association represents the captain in many national and international consultative bodies and has very good contacts with the government.
