Damen Shiprepair Curaçao


Damen Shiprepair Curaçao is strategically located in the Caribbean, en route to the Panama Canal, and outside the Hurricane Belt.  The yard is perfectly positioned to serve as a logistics hub, ensuring the smooth flow of goods and services through the region and the yard offers excellent working conditions within a natural bay, in ideal weather conditions.


On 1 February 2017, Damen Shiprepair & Conversion took over the management of the Curaçao Drydock Company, established in 1959. Under the name of Damen Shiprepair Curaçao it will continue offering a full range of services in maintenance, quality repair and conversion covering all vessel types for shipping companies all over the globe.

The yard has two graven docks, which capacity will further be increased by adding a floating dock, and offers three mooring and repair quays with a total length of 1,000 metres and ample crane capacity.

The shipyard is located at crossroads of major shipping routes. This, together with more than 50 years of experience,  application of international standards and  membership of the Damen Shipyards Group is amongst the key advantages of the yard.



Damen Shiprepair Curaçao is holder of the ISO certificates Quality Management System ISO 9001:2008 and Environmental Management System ISO 14001:2004.  Both certificates were renewed in 2016. From this strong foundation we aim to improve our service levels and standards over the coming years. The certificates were presented by the auditor, Lloyd’s Register Nederland BV, on behalf of Lloyds Register Quality Assurance.
