About us

MaraSoft is a family business founded in 1999. Our founders were previously active as (mechanical) maritime engineers. Marad started as a compact and simple planned maintenance system, but has now grown into a complete type approved fleet management system with nine modules. Our headquarters is located right in front of the harbour entrance of the fishing village of Urk, with a beautiful view over the IJsselmeer. Thousands of vessels and installations rely on Marad to effectively manage their operations.
