KaiserWerft which had lost its popularity in the yacht market has regained it with new group of investors who have shown interest in the German shipyard. Earlier, the yard had received accolades for manufacturing the 31m C’est la Vie in 2004, 40.6m Catwalk in 2006 and the 40.6m Cloud 9 in 2007. The yard had to face difficult times when many of its clients cancelled several orders owing to the financial crisis. However, the yard was present, this year, at the Boot Dusseldorf show to revive its name in the yacht industry.

Making a progressive move, KaiserWerft have purchased new machinery and inventory while acquiring a construction facility in Antalya, Turkey. Remarkably, the production area of the yard has increased from 4,000m2 to 33,000m2. In contrast to the previous yachts made by them (30metres to 40.6metres), they now aim to manufacture yachts with length upto 65m. KaiserWerft believe in transforming the unique German styles and design into beautiful yachts in the country itself excluding larger units of the yachts like engines. The team of the shipyard has the skills to build light, superlight, steel and aluminium construction. In addition to this, with their involvement in the semi custom projects, they expect to attract a wider segment of the market.

The yard which has an experience of 20 years into the yacht industry has been supported by new investments. KaiserWerft is looking forward to make a positive impact in the market by introducing new production, facilitating clients and dealers and generating new sales channels. By learning lessons from the past, they are determined to make new line of sail and motoryachts especially with support from few internationally renowned superyacht designers.
