During the nineteen-eighties the Directorate for Public Works and Water Management decides to sell off its marine services and Wagenborg is the obvious candidate to takeover. Subsequently, the acquisition takes place on 1 January 1986.  A design for a new generation of passenger ships is produced and the first ship to be completed is the "Sier" and the "Oerd" follows a few months later. Their predecessors, the state-owned vessels “Prins Willem IV” and “Prinses Anna” are renovated and renamed “Brakzand” and “Simonszand” and added to the fleet.
