Here, on Mecklenburg-Vorpommern´s Baltic Sea coast, where the weather is rugged and the people reserved, the maritime heart of the state is all the more audible. And that has been the case for almost 75 years.
At MV WERFTEN, Hanseatic shipbuilding tradition meets future innovation. With a worldwide unique new construction programme on order, our celebrated shipyards in Wismar, Rostock and Stralsund have made maritime global history since 2016. In 2017, we delivered the first ‘made in MV' luxury river cruise ships, two more in 2018.The flagships of the Global Class and Endeavor Class are currently under construction at our three yards, with the start of production of the second vessel in each class being scheduled for 2019.
With roofed shipbuilding docks, one of the largest ship lifts in the world and an efficient logistics infrastructure in combination with the comprehensive maritime expertise of our employees , we have the ideal conditions to build high-quality cruise ships in any weather. At MVW, we know that only those who are passionate about shipbuilding can deliver first-class products, each and every time.
"We breathe shipbuilding" – that is the ethos that unites all employees at MV WERFTEN. We are a team. We work together, we learn from one another and we develop together.
We know that first-class ships are built by first-class workers. This is why we pay particular care and attention to the working conditions, the health and the education of our colleagues. From the initial design to delivery, over 2,800 MVW staff at three locations contribute to the development of our projects. Whatever it is, we will build it well and we will build it together.
A ‘made in MV' ship is world-renowned for top quality and should remain so long into the future. Our values and a corporate culture characterised by trust and commitment steer us on a clear course with our own R & D programs, constant development and high quality and HSE standards.
