Retirement Of Capt. Ruud Behrend, Nautical Inspector


It is with mixed feelings we witness Ruud’s retirement.  He has served the Barbados flag as Nautical Inspector in The Netherlands for 25 years, always as the consummate professional in his dealings with both the flag and clients alike. We are glad to note his long service and acknowledge with sincere thanks and appreciation Ruud’s contribution to the continuing success of the Barbados flag.  We are blessed to have had the benefit of Capt. Behrend’s long maritime experience and expertise, and grateful for his constant courtesy and support in maintaining the quality of the Barbados fleet.

Many of our ship owners and managers will know Ruud, and on their behalf  and ours, we wish him a long and happy retirement.  We shall miss you.

Thank you, Ruud, for your outstanding service.  Our best wishes to you and your family.  May you always have fair winds and following seas.
