Company history

The history of Shipman began in 1968 on the Swedish island of Visby, where the first Shipman 28 designed by Olle Enderlein was built. Lightweight and fast, the yacht proved to be in demand in the market, with around 1300 hulls of this model subsequently built. A year later the very successful 30-foot Shipman Scampi designed by Peter Norlin was also launched, followed by the Shipman Accent, Shipman Stratus and monotype Shipman Ballad by Rolf Magnusson.

In 1993 the shipyard started working with J&J design, and Shipman 8m One Design was born, which was built in Slovenia at Seaway shipyard. In 2003, Shipman was taken over by Seaway, and the development of the first all-carbon Shipman 50 began. In 2004 this boat won the «European Yacht of the Year title in» all categories. Two years later the same title was awarded to Shipman 63, and the innovative evolution of Shipman continued. In 2013, the company introduced Shipman 59 with hybrid propulsion and solar panels.

Despite technological advances, however, Seaway has suffered a financial collapse and in 2015 it was declared bankrupt. The company's assets were saved thanks to the enthusiasm of entrepreneur Vladimir Zinchenko, who subsequently bought Seaway out in full.
