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. With two covered building halls and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Papenburg, we are one of the largest and most modern shipyards in the world with halls of 370 and 504 metres in length.
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 yachting division MEYER Yachts follows exactly the same path.
The Meyer family has kept its shipbuilding company on course for 227 years – that’s seven generations. Currently Bernard Meyer and his sons Jan and Tim sit on the MEYER management board.
