Our ship building experience dates back to 1960s with our umbrella organization Besiktas Group’s high value and sophisticated vessels that were handed over to 1st class ship owners and operators worldwide. Besiktas Group has built 21 tankers as project manager and builder of these vessels coordinating all aspects of shipbuilding by providing the design, equipment, workmanship and full contract responsibilities via using third party facilities.

With the establishment of Besiktas Shipyard in 2007, we have reached a building capacity of 7 ships per annum up to 30,000DWT.

Besiktas Shipyard has mainly concentrated to special purpose vessels with tailor made solutions in order to diversify the ship building portfolio and act in line with the general strategy to supply value added ships to its clients.
