Maritime Industry Germany
Germany has always been an important shipbuilding nation and is one of the largest shipbuilding countries in the European Union. Most shipyards building seagoing vessels are concentrated in the northern part of the country, while the supply industry is spread all over Germany.
Thanks to excellent system integration skills, the shipbuilding industry has the ability to supply custom-built products. Hence, the focus has shifted to highly specialized vessels, such as mega yachts, river cruise ships, ocean-going cruise ships, wind farm service vessels, ro-ro and ro-pax vessels, military vessels and patrol vessels. Blohm + Voss, Lürssen, Meyer Werft, Neptun Werft and Nobiskrug are well-known names in the industry.
Germany’s yacht builders are known for supreme quality and style. The German yacht building sector has delivered the largest yachts in the world. In fact, five (Azzam, Eclipse, Dilbar, Al Saïd and Topaz) out of the top 10 largest yachts ever built were built in Germany, affirming that German craftsmanship is highly valued among the luxury yacht industry.
