Ulstein Group

Ulstein Group ASA is the parent company of a group of maritime companies, specialising in ship design and maritime solutions, shipbuilding, power and control and shipping. The family-owned company was founded in 1917.


Norway has been a seafaring nation since the pre-Viking age. Our Norwegian origins testify to a long tradition of maritime knowledge. For 100 years, the demanding conditions of the North Sea have shaped ULSTEIN’s quality and safety standards and created a strong foundation for meeting future challenges.


Our shipbuilding history dates back to 1917, starting with the repairs and construction of fishing vessels, followed by steel newbuilds including passenger ships, ferries and offshore vessels.
