Special ships are our specialty17 february 2017
Europort has traditionally had a strong focus on special purpose ships, including offshore vessels, dredgers, construction vessels, naval craft, workboats, inland vessels, fishing boats and super yachts. The 2017 edition will be no different.
Having a specific focus on special purpose ships is what sets Europort apart from other maritime events. European shipbuilders with a traditionally strong record of accomplishment in building tugs, offshore support vessels, inland river barges, yachts and ferries, dredgers, and fishery craft continue to be among the most significant exhibitors at Europort. Damen Shipyards group for example will be present to give details of several key developments, including a new line of trailing suction hopper dredgers, as well as its new Damen Service Offshore Vessel design, the first of which, Bibby Wavemaster will be launched in the spring of 2017. Damen continues to lead the way in tug technology and will be highlighting new environment friendly designs at Europort.
