The SWZ - Akerboom Archive
The SWZ – Akerboom Archive contains all of the editions and articles of the magazines “SWZ Maritime”, “Schip en Werf de Zee”, “Schip en Werf” and “Het Schip” since 1919. The archive has been named after Richard Akerboom, editor of SWZ Maritime and the driving force behind the realisation of this digital archive until his death in 2013.
With ship descriptions, technical developments and news, the archive spans nearly a century of maritime progression. To share the maritime knowledge gathered over the years, SWZ Maritime has launched this digital archive in PDF. The archive is accessible to members of the Royal Netherlands Society of Marine Technologists (KNVTS), to members of the Labour Union for marine personnel (Nautilus) and to other SWZ Maritime subscribers by their personal user ID.
The archive offers search options by years(s), key words or a combination of both options. To search the PDFs found after a search query, you need a user ID and the latest version of Acrobat Reader on your computer.
