We’re making waves

MEYER WERFT is one of the largest and most modern shipyards in the world. Cruise ships for international shipping companies have been built at our production and construction docks for several decades. Around 55 luxury liners have left our shipyard to date – and the next vessels are already under construction.

Built upon tradition

The Meyer family has kept its shipbuilding company on course for 225 years – that’s seven generations. The company was founded in Papenburg, and our shipyard facilities are still located there to this day. This is where the shipyard’s founder, Willm Rolf Meyer, started building small wooden sailing boats in 1795. Over the decades and centuries that followed, MEYER WERFT constantly showed its pioneering spirit. After expanding our production and construction halls, we delivered the world’s first cruise ship with a low-emission LNG propulsion system in 2018. MEYER WERFT is considered one of the leading technological specialists in the field of cruise ship construction.

We know this success is mainly due to our employees and partner companies. That’s why we continue to promote cooperative partnerships and assume responsibility for people, the region and the environment.
