About us

Welcome to


EMDEN DOCKYARD is a compact refit facility with an excellent and modern infrastructure and a highly skilled team of almost 150 workers and project managers with many years of experience. We cover the complete spectrum of naval, commercial, special & offshore, superyachts and cruise ships. Here we carry out refits, rebuilds, repair works and also smaller new builds. Our range of services is complemented by the fabrication of welded structures and the mechanical processing of a wide variety of machine components as contract manufacturers. Our core team is augmented by a dedicated group of subcontractors with whom we have worked together for many years. This cooperation enables us to cater for any job, anywhere and independent of its size or complexity. The focus of our activities, however, is on people, both on the side of our customer and on our staff. Their requirements are the most important thing for us. In this we are supported by an integrated health, safety, environmental and quality management system („HSEQ Management“) that we have developed.
