CDS River Cruise 135

Your Journey Begins Here

Our team designs and builds the ships that shape your client’s experiences when sailing the world’s most enchanting rivers and lakes. Our expertise ranges from crafting tailored vessels for shipowners and tour operators to collaborating effectively with the designer of your choice.

With more than 250 global deliveries, we seamlessly blend commercial marine and luxury cruise knowledge and technology, using insights from one realm to enrich the other. Our vessels evolve dynamically, adapting to environmental shifts and new regulations, from shallow draft waters to safety and pioneering propulsion and fuel technologies.

Working in the inland waterway cruise market incorporates a focus on creating luxury experiences for travellers and a pleasant working environment for the crew.

As a cruise owner or manager, navigating the balance between a luxurious guest experience and optimal ROI is key. Concordia Damen helps you achieving this delicate balance. We provide customizable partnerships with leading luxury interior designers, but also offer our own in-house designs.

Environmental stewardship

Our commitment to sustainability is embedded in every vessel we craft. Eco-friendly ships, with low-impact materials and a traceable, circular approach, redefine sustainable sailing. Many features are retrofit-ready, extending the life of your fleet while enhancing your environmental stewardship.

Of course, you can choose from a wide range of emission-reducing and even emission-free propulsion systems.
