We work with a passion for everything afloat. Whether its new build or conversions and modifications, C-Job is renowned for ground-breaking new vessels in a broad range of maritime sectors that includes dredging, heavy lift, offshore (wind), ferries, superyachts and more.

From the very first concept vessel designs, through to basic and detailed engineering packages, C-Job engineers are committed to producing new, innovative and sustainable solutions for the global maritime shipbuilding industry. Our attention to detail and close cooperation with ship owners and yards means that we are able to develop exactly what the client has in mind.

In addition to ship design services, C-Job also offers clients worldwide assistance and support during the construction process (Building Supervision). It is also possible for our personnel to work at a client’s location to provide tailor-made naval architectural and engineering expertise on a temporary basis (C-Job On-Site).
