Schindler Marine

Schindler Marine is your choice for luxury cruise ships, mega-yachts and ferries. We develop special mobility solutions for marine installations and are known for meeting the high aesthetic standards of the cruise industry.

Our promise

Unmistakable design

For passengers and shipowners, design is the most important feature of an onboard elevator. It should be a unique creation to match the design concept of the vessel.

With our expertise and technology, we deliver value-added mobility solutions to architects and shipowners. We fulfill aesthetic and service expectations with fully customized elevators. Our solutions combine high-quality materials such as marble, ebony, glass, stainless steel or teak to meet any design request.

Highest standards

Our elevators comply with the strict naval register requirements for onboard installations worldwide. These include design specifications like escape routes, and materials, for fire proofing and cables.

Schindler elevators are some of the best at handling ship movement and vibration at sea. Our motors are more powerful than land models. The cabins are vibration-free and protected against water, dust and corrosion. And, like all Schindler products, our marine elevators are energy efficient and deliver the ultimate in reliable operation.

Our experience

Naval expertise

Schindler Marine has been an expert consultant and close partner to shipbuilders and naval architects since the 1980s. We typically advise and work with shipyards from the early stages of planning and designing a vessel, to installing and maintaining elevators and escalators. Service and maintenance teams are available globally and managed from the head offices in Milan, Italy, as well as the two hubs in Miami, USA, and Shanghai, China.

Marine engineering team

We have a dedicated Marine Engineering Team. Every project they complete is a truly unique solution. They specialize in exceeding the expectations of shipowners and shipbuilders, while complying with strict naval requirements.
