In the second half of 2005, Imtech has seen the maritime market segment for luxury yachts and cruise ships pick up in a number of European countries. Especially Germany has undergone a positive market development. Imtech a very strong player in this segment in Europe. From Imtech's three maritime competence centres, intensive co-operation is giving rise to fully sustainable technological solutions with a competitive integral cost price in both yachts and cruise ships. These centres are Imtech Marine & Offshore in the Netherlands (Rotterdam), Imtech Schiffbau-/Dockbautechnik in Germany (Hamburg), and HST (HDW-Hagenuk Schiffstechnik) in Germany (Hamburg, Kiel and Bremerhaven).
