New ships for the world
Shipbuilding has a long tradition in Lower Saxony. After the boom years many shipyards on the coast of Niedersachsen have now developed into specialised high-tech companies. In addition there are a great many shipyards building yachts and boats. New vessels are being built and repair services are also performed in the Seaports of Niedersachsen. Many small luxury yacht cruisers, cruise ships and special ships come from shipbuilding companies in Niedersachsen. Medium-sized and smaller container vessels as well as frigates and submarines for the marine originate from here.
Not only the building of high-class, modern vessels has a long tradition in Niedersachsen, but also cruises as such. Due to the high growth rates they have become an important economic sector over the past years.
