SYM Naval

Who we are


SYM Naval shipyard specializes in the construction of vessels for port use, support services and transport.

With more than 10 years of experience in the naval sector, its background and its firm commitment to innovation have consolidated it as a reference for shipowners worldwide.


SYM Naval's team is composed of a group of highly trained professionals in naval engineering, able to work in full synchrony in the development of the different phases of the work ordered by the shipowners.

The shipyard uses the most advanced naval architecture software on the market.


SYM Naval's work centers are strategically located in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, areas where the shipyard started its shipbuilding activity.

Its bases in Barcelona (Spain) - Europe's leading cruise port and an important node for the transport of goods — and Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) - commercial gateway to Latin America and link to US ports — allow SYM Naval to cover two areas of great influence due to their proximity to routes with high shipping traffic.


SYM Naval is the only company in the Spanish Mediterranean that builds steel vessels classified by classification societies belonging to the IACS (International Association of Classification Societies). Thus, we guarantee the high safety and quality standards required internationally.


With its own department specialized in R&D&I, SYM Naval focuses its production processes on innovation, making use of new technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence (AI), robotic insertion and industrial automation. In this sense, its maximum objective is to be permanently at the technological forefront and thus take advantage of all the opportunities presented by the new naval industry 4.0.

The shipyard's technical office carefully plans each project to ensure its optimal execution, using 3D design in its digital models so that the shipowner can consult the status of the project in real time and remotely.


SYM Naval has different certifications that ensure its environmental and social responsibility policies, as well as compliance with the strictest standards and regulations on quality, occupational health and safety.

- ISO 14001: Guarantee of our clear commitment to the environment and the protection of our oceans.

- ISO 45001: Guarantee of a safe working environment, preventing accidents and health problems.

- ISO 9001: Guarantee of quality and efficiency in the technical services of shipbuilding, conversion and repair.
