The shipyard has ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 Quality Management System accreditation, and holds Ministry of Defense production license, accompanied with NATO and National Security Clearance Certificates.

The company’s facilities are located in the Antalya Free Zone on Turkey’s Mediterranean shore and comprise 5 air-conditioned factories with a combined enclosed production area of 40,000 square meters capable of steel, aluminum and advanced composites shipbuilding and state-of-the-art furniture manufacturing.


At the heart of ARES Shipyard’s success are its willingness to partner with leading design and equipment providers around the world such as BMT, Meteksan Defence Industry Inc. and Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems to produce best-in-class vessel designs, to use the latest technology and highly-trained personnel to ensure superior build quality, and above all, to fully engage with the customer at all stages to ensure that their needs are fulfilled.

These principles have resulted in the shipyard delivering more than 100 vessels of varying sizes to date.

They are backed by an energetic integrated logistics support team that engages customers throughout the life-cycle of the vessel’s development and deployment, from the initial contact, through delivery and implementation into service, to support throughout the vessel’s operational life.
