Hanse Group is bundling its yacht and speedboat production at its German parent plant in Greifswald on the Baltic Sea.

In August, Hanse Group, which includes the brands Hanse, Moody, Dehler and Fjord, will move the production of Dehler yachts and small parts for Hanse yachts from a facility east of Cologne to the Baltic Sea facility.

Once the move has been completed, Hanse, Dehler and Moody sailing yachts and Fjord speedboats will be produced in Greifswald.

Dehler yachts are intended more for competitive sailing and Moody yachts are geared more toward the needs of long-distance sailors, but both types require the implementation of a large number of individual customer-specific requests, the company said. For this reason, the production of Dehler yachts will be grouped together with Moody's semi series production. Bundling production activities at one site is the logical consequence of an increasingly close collaboration, the company said.

"Ever since the acquisition of Dehler three years ago, we started adapting the general production process of both brands,” Hanse Yachts AG production director Peter Barth said in a statement.

Testing will be also easier with all production on the Baltic coast, the company said.
