Hello world!

Welcome to the Half-Hull Shipyard by master boat designer Joerg Haut from Schwanewede, Germany.

Since the 18th. century shipwrights used to create a half-model of a ship before its construction began. The half-hull was the technical basis for creating the final plans of the ship building project. Moreover the half-hulls were not only functional but were used as a decoration for the ship yard offices.

For about 10 years I have constructed many half-models. In addition to individual boat lovers the Akademischer Segelverein Berlin has ordered several models from my shipyard.

Please look at the boat half-models on this website and contact me if you are interested in a half-hull. I build specific models by assignment. There is also a series of models in my workshop that you can order. I will send the finished product worldwide to its destination.
