tradition

The Meyer family has kept its shipbuilding company on course for 226 years – that’s seven generations. Currently Bernard Meyer and his sons Jan and Tim sit on the MEYER management board.

The company was founded in Papenburg, Germany 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. More than 700 ships of different types have been built at the yard to date.

The other shipyards in the 6.500 employee strong MEYER Group are NEPTUN WERFT in Rostock and MEYER TURKU in Finland. We design and build ships tailored to the needs of our clients and with a wealth of expertise and innovative solutions. Our new yachting division MEYER Yachts follows exactly the same path.
