Deutsche Werkstätten has been active in the yacht industry since 1999 and has gained a lot of experience in the field. For Udo Jaeschke, Project Manager at the company, this experience is vital given the current developments in the industry.
“Our remit is growing all the time. As well as getting bigger in terms of size, the projects are also becoming more complex. The use and combination of new materials requires the testing and development of unique finishes. The management and communication tasks are also more demanding. Finally, the application of building and safety regulations which are constantly being revised and up-dated, further complicate an already complex construction process.”
The role of Deutsche Werkstätten has also evolved over the years, as well as the range and scope of our responsibilities. In particular, the relationship with the shipyards has changed significantly. We have gone from straight forward supplier and fitter of interiors, to being responsible for the overall planning including technical aspects. For Udo Jaeschke, it is clear that this is an area that will continue to grow. Good planning, project management and excellent engineering skills will all play their part, but above all it will be the design engineers and experts working for DW’s Research and Development team, that will have the most to deal with. “I can’t think of another business that is on a similar level in terms of variety of materials and applications.”
When it comes to know-how and technical expertise the requirements in the yacht building industry are unparalleled. At Deutsche Werkstätten, thanks to years of collaboration with the best partners in the field, we have the know-how and expertise to take on these challenges with confidence!”
