Speak face-to-face with the locals working at the Brodosplit shipyard and discover exactly what it’s like on the job.


After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at Brodosplit, a shipyard that has built more than 450 vessels since opening at this location in 1932. Because of its large size and substantial number of employees, Brodosplit has profoundly and positively affected the local economy and the lives of its workers. You will gain an understanding of the depth of that importance by touring the shipyard and speaking directly to the workers.


Passenger ships, container ships, cargo vessels and oil tankers are all built at Brodosplit, and during the hard-hat tour, you will be introduced to the different types of ships that come out of the yard. You will see the complexity of the construction process firsthand, from the distribution and cutting of the steel all the way through to the assembly on the slipway.

They might cover topics such as how shipbuilding technology has changed over the decades, how safety is ensured in every facet of construction and the details of their particular jobs.
