The Strength of the Turkish Shipbuilding Industry

Today, the Turkish Shipbuilding Industry, with an annual construction capacity of 4.65 million tons, has signed many “mosts” and “first”s and continues to do so, such as the world's largest live fish transport vessel, the first LNG-powered tugboat, the first hybrid ferry, the world's first battery and LNG-powered fishing vessel, the first energy conversion vessels, the largest like a sailing yacht. In addition, Türkiye has become one of the few countries in the world to build its own military ships and is among the top three in the world in yacht building.

With its high-quality workforce and production capacity meeting European Standards and quality, the Turkish Shipbuilding Industry can compete  with the leading countries in the maritime industry, particularly in new shipbuilding, ship maintenance-repair, and defense industry projects.

Turkiye’s strengths in the industry: its geographical location between Europe and Asia, enough highly skilled labor force including well-trained naval architects, a worldwide recognition in small tonnage ships (small chemical tankers, tugs, mega yachts), shipyards flexibly responding to market conditions (shift to other ship types and reorientation to ship repair & conversion). Since there is an increasing demand for greener ships and luxury yachts worldwide, the opportunities for the Turkish Shipbuilding Industry are endless.
