MV WERFTEN is the heart of the maritime industry in the German federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Luxurious polar expedition yachts as well as the world's largest and most technologically advanced cruise liners are designed 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 2,900 employees, but our entrenched corporate philosophy. Over the last 75 years, our shipyards in Wismar, Rostock and Stralsund have delivered more than 2,500 new vessels for deployment in the tourism sector, the Arctic region and the logistics and the offshore industry.
In 2016, we opened up a new and exciting chapter in the long and rich history of shipbuilding excellence in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern with the construction of unparalleled cruise ships, delivering four luxury river cruise ships within eight months and progressing with the construction of the first Endeavor expedition yacht and the Global Class flagship at 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. That is the MV WERFTEN way.
On 28 June, the shipbuilding group MV WERFTEN received a special award for exemplary and convincing innovation management: the TOP 100 seal of approval, confirming that it is one of the 100 most innovative small and medium-sized enterprises in Germany.
King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima today visited the MV WERFTEN Rostock facility to be briefed about the construction of the first Global Class cruise ship and the training programme at the shipyard group. A maritime symposium for German and Dutch companies was held on the shipyard site parallel to the royal visit.
Alle drei Standorte wurden von den Industrie- und Handelskammern zu Rostock und zu Schwerin als „TOP Ausbildungsbetriebe“ ausgezeichnet. Die Werften überzeugten mit innovativen Ideen, interessanten Ausbildungskonzepten sowie einer hervorragenden Betreuung und Förderung der Azubis.
