Blohm+Voss create superyacht division
Blohm+Voss has created a new dedicated superyacht division.
The company says that the superyacht division will be based in Hamburg Germany, and will bring together the Shipyard and Repair divisions.
The new department has been created following new equity from Star Capital.
Fred van Beers, Blohm+Voss CEO said: “Star Capital supports our long term plans to invest in Blohm+Voss and to ensure we continue to meet the changing needs of clients in the large yacht sector well into the future. Our strong financial position, combined with this further investment clearly reinforces a strong confidence in the business and our ability to build truly exceptional superyachts.”
Beers joined Blohm+Voss in March 2015 from Wärtsilä, where he was Vice President Services, Northern Europe.
