Ship owners and captains. Entrepreneurs and engineers. Shipbuilders and cruise passengers. With us, your dream ships are always in the best hands.
In 1900, a brilliant business idea led to the creation, at our yard, of the first purebred cruise ship in the world. The Prinzessin Victoria Luise ushered in a new age of tourism. For Blohm+Voss this was the successful start to a fascinating area of business. Today, the international cruise ship industry, which hosts over 21 million passengers per annum, has become a highly dynamic and specialised field. Blohm+Voss is a firm fixture in this market.
Our unique experience in shipbuilding, ship repair and the management of highly complex projects mean that we have a precise understanding of the needs of our customers and their ships. Around ten passenger liners and cruise ships are welcomed to our yard every year for a wide variety of dock work, ranging from standard servicing to refits, repairs, upgrades, and complex redesigns – for luxury liners and cruise ships of all sizes.
Every ship is its own world. We know this. This is why we offer our clients all conceivable options for their repair, refit and service contracts at our 421,000 m2 shipyard, with its highly qualified workforce, here in Hamburg. There are no commercial limits to your project in terms of technology, physical space or personnel capability, at this, one of the largest shipyards in Europe.
Blohm+Voss has long stood for quality at the absolutely highest level. The company is a product of unique shipbuilding tradition, continual investment in the skills of our workforce, and the use of the most up-to-date manufacturing technologies. It follows naturally, therefore, that all spheres of work at Blohm+Voss are certified for quality, environment, health and safety.
