MV WERFTEN is the heart of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’s maritime industry. Luxurious river ships, polar mega yachts and the world’s largest cruise liners are imagined, developed and built here.
A passion for shipbuilding, a belief in our abilities and the courage to innovate is what sets us apart. “Three shipyards. One team.” is not just a slogan for our 1,500 employees, but an entrenched corporate philosophy. Over the last 70 years, our shipyards in Wismar, Rostock and Stralsund have delivered over 2,500 new vessels for deployment in tourism, the Arctic, logistics and the offshore industry.
With the construction of unique, world renowned cruise ships, we are opening up a new and exciting chapter in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’s long and rich history of shipbuilding excellence. We will be delivering the first two luxury river cruise ships as early as 2017. In future, two ships of the New Panamax class and one of the Panamax class will be built annually at MV WERFTEN. Our employees’ unsurpassed construction skills and our state-of-the-art, high-tech production facilities guarantee the finest workmanship and the highest quality products of anywhere on earth. That is the MV WERFTEN way.
