Our staff have comprehensive experience and always adhere to the special requirements and features of the various different brands when carrying out repairs.
  • Fiber Glass repairs
    Fassmer started building boats made of GRP in the 1950s.

    Our long tradition has enabled us to specialize in fiberglass/carbon fiber repairs, especially for emergency structural lifeboat damages.

    Fassmer has a long and deep history with most administrations and is able to manage all fiberglass repairs from project introduction to signing off on all required documents on behalf of clients.

    Furthermore, our experience in fiberglass and carbon fiber repairs allows us to repair the slides and pools or any other GRP/carbon fiber products on your ships.

So you see: Fassmer Service is not only your competent maritime service provider in the standard service segment. We can also look back at many successful years of implementing exceptional national and international projects, such as large-scale refits of up to 26 tenders and lifeboats within tight dry-docking schedules. Whether in Hamburg, on the Bahamas or in Singapore – we work where you need us and where your ships are, all around the globe.

A technical pre-inspection on board is the first step towards a detailed offer. This pre-inspection is carried out by one of our experienced Senior Surveyors and one of our Senior Service Engineers. This provides our customers in the cruise ship industry with a well-structured process for each individual maintenance group. 

A team of specialists supports us in this, and ensures that everything runs smoothly and on schedule. Of course we guarantee that our work will be carried out cleanly and carefully.

Our project managers are regularly on site to monitor the construction progress.
