Since 3 years, Kyokuyo has been building high-standard modern cargo ships for European owners, along with our established line of products like container carriers or reefers. It is certainly a frontier for Japanese middle sized shipyards which have traditionally specialized in offering basic vessels with excellent finish and for competitive price.
Building "European" style ships that are not regularly seen at our home waters for account of shipowners who have not much experience in placing order to Far-Eastern builders - such a project does require comprehensive abilities on the part of shipyards. It was surely a big challenge to Kyokuyo, although all of us were quite confident to overcome it.
And (we think) we have achieved a successful outcome so far. We (think we) could build what we had conceived and what our clients had wanted to realize. You don't believe ? Okay, let us introduce some of papers that were recently published !
