For us, shipbuilding is more than just an industry. It’s a passion.


MV WERFTEN is the heart of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’s maritime industry. Luxurious river ships, polar expedition 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 2,000 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 .

In 2016, we opened up a new and exciting chapter in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's long and rich history of shipbuilding excellence with the construction of unparalleled cruise ships. Having already delivered four luxury river-cruise ships within eight months, construction of the first Endeavor expedition yacht and of the Global Class flagship is also in progress on our three yards.

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.
