    Dutch fishing is very individualistic. Most shipping-companies are family businesses. That is why a great diversity of equipment is found in a wheelhouse of a Dutch beamtrawler. The large amount of equipment and all the noise of it can confuse the steersman, which with safety interferes. Investigation proves that more and more fishing vessels are involved in collisions on the North Sea. A state of the art of a modern beamtrawler is given. Studies in the merchant marine prove that an integrated wheelhouse is much safer. In collaboration with the Technical University at Delft a new design for a better wheelhouse is being developed.
