Eel Kant joined Amels as sales manager of the refit department. Kant has more than 30 years experience in the industry. A graduate of Delft Technical University, Kant has board-level experience with Feadship Royal van Lent, Oceanco and Jongert.

Kant worked his way up through the shipbuilding industry including eight years in commercial shipping doing planning, prefabrication, fabrication, outfitting and management.

“My technical background and experience in all these areas, as well as in project management, should prove very useful in my new role at Amels,” Kant said.

“Eel is a very valuable addition to our refit team,” said Rob Luijendijk, managing director of Amels. “With his vast experience across the industry, he will really draw attention to Amels’ capabilities at the top end of the refit market.”
