From a modest start with a single shipyard, established in 1927, Damen has since grown to over 32 shipyards and related companies involved in new construction as well as maintenance and repair activities.
In 1969 the concept of construction of tugs, workboats and other commercial craft to standard designs, based on modular building principles, was introduced. This modular construction approach offers our clients important advantages: competitive prices, short delivery times and proven technology and performance.
Today, our new building activities include a wide range of products, such as tugs, workboats, patrol craft, cargo vessels, dredgers and even mega yachts and fast ferries.
Product design and engineering are carried out in-house and a broad range of standard designs is available. Damen’s product development policy is primarily driven by customer feedback and (field) experience. We consider this a strength that has been at the core of our success. More than 5000 units were delivered.
Competitive pricing and a reputation for efficient post-delivery customer support is an equally important feature of Damen.
Damen, in addition to shipbuilding, offers complete life cycle service for their prefabricated shipbuilding kits, ship delivery service, commissioning on site, crew training, supply of spare parts, and maintenance contracts. Service support is provided by a dedicated service team based at world wide support hubs.
Our extensive international Sales and Marketing organization enables us to maintain close contact with our customers worldwide. This allows us to respond to their needs in a prompt and professional manner.
