Montis’ mooring and unmooring services are synonymous with quality, safety and efficiency. We are available in the port around the clock and can reach any vessel without delay. Operations are carried out in the locks, alongside quays and, using our mooring launches, we moor and unmoor vessels on jetties and poles.



Our qualified Helmsmen are experts with exhaustive knowledge of the River Scheldt and the Terneuzen-to-Ghent Canal. They will safely and efficiently steer your vessel to its destination, in consultation with the Pilot and under command of the vessel's Master.

Boatman Education

As a Boatman, you are a nautical service provider in and around the port of Terneuzen. From mooring and unmooring of seagoing vessels to delivering ship supplies or assisting in emergencies in the port area. The work takes place both on board and ashore. We operate around the clock so you work in a shift system, going home after every shift.

You will attend the Shipping and Transport College for the theoretical part of the Boatman Education (level 3). Depending on your certificates and diplomas, it will be determined which subjects you have to take and for which exemptions you may be eligible.

After three years, practical knowledge must be sufficiently developed, which is tested with a practical exam. When this is successfully completed and the theory exams are also properly completed, the student obtains the Boatman's diploma. Therefore, before an apprentice is allowed to call himself "Boatman", intensive training, inspection and education must take place and this makes an important contribution to safety and quality in the port.
