History

Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft was founded in 1872 by a group of five local shipowners who previously had all their steamboats built in England as most German shipowners did in the 19th century.[2]

The first ship, the iron tall ship Doris Brodersen, was delivered to one of the founding partners in 1875. The cargo steamer Septima was commissioned a year later.[2]

Since then Flensburger has delivered more than 700 units of different types of cargo steamers and motor vessels and has also built sailing ships, barges, floating dry docks, tankers, fishing vessels, passenger ships, naval ships and even submarines.

Flensburger was acquired by Egon Oldendorff in March 1990 and then sold to the management in December 2008.[3]
