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 2,800 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.
At a press conference in Rostock, the management of MV WERFTEN announced details of its shipbuilding projects, completed investment programme and plans for the future.
