Ships. Ahead.

We’ve been doing what we’re famous for across the oceans of the world since 1877: building, converting and repairing ships for sailors, visionaries and businesses. We watch them disappear over the horizon and then get straight back to work.

Shipyard + World

Sailors and shipbuilders. Mechanics and technical designers. Trainees and engineers. Star designers and ship fanatics. The big, wide world on the river Elbe – the visionary Hamburg shipyard. 

Over our more than 135 years in the business, we’re proud to have written global, maritime history. Here at the heart of the port of Hamburg, the gateway to 900 harbours across the globe, we cultivate our unceasing passion for ships. Now as then, we are looking ahead – more than others.
As ship builders we set a clear course within our areas of expertise, which include Merchant Vessels, Offshore Units, Passenger Ships and Yachts. Through our uncompromising technical excellence and outstanding efficiency in 360-degree solutions, we provide our clients with enduring quality, in combination with project, costing and deadline management, which carry the Hanseatic seal.
