100 and young at heart

In 2017, we are celebrating our 100 years of history. The demanding conditions of the North Sea have shaped Ulstein’s standards and created a strong foundation for meeting future challenges.

Norway has been a seafaring nation since the Viking age, and our Norwegian origins testify to a long tradition of maritime knowledge. 

Ulstein was established in the midst of the maritime industry’s transition from sail to motor. The company quickly embraced this vital trend, demonstrating its focus on the future. Ulstein established a reputation for providing solid technological solutions – and for delivering on time and as promised.
