Sometimes our clients need a specific vessel, one not currently obtainable on the 2nd hand market. You may have special goods to transport, have very specific requirements, which no existing vessel meets. In that case a new ship has to be contracted.

PragerShip assists you in developing the project, locates the most suitable shipyard and involves the right naval architects for your preferred design.
