Founded on 1. November 1937, the story of KNUD E. HANSEN has in many ways been
the story of naval architecture itself over the past 75 years. The
company has both experienced and been at the forefront of many of the
dramatic changes in commercial ship design that have taken place in that
period, during which economic pressures and new technologies
transformed the looks and capabilities of the vessels that traverse our
seas and oceans.
Thousands of vessels
KNUD E. HANSEN has left its mark on thousands of vessels since it was first
founded. Here we list the major projects on which we have worked over
those years, starting in 1937 and taking the reader right up to the
present. The record encompasses an exceptional variety of vessel types
ranging from the largest and most elegant cruise ships of their day to
the latest ferries, container carriers and tankers.
