Who we are:

 Ferguson Marine have been an integral part of shipbuilding on the River Clyde since 1903 and are now entering an exciting stage in our development as a world leader in marine engineering technology.

Over the past few years Ferguson Marine has pushed the boundaries of innovation, particularly in the development of green propulsion technologies – first diesel-electric hybrid and then liquefied natural gas, demonstrated by the recent successful launches of MV Catriona and MV Glen Sannox. Next on the hit-list is hydrogen, a gaseous fuel that can be produced using curtailed renewable energy, stored and then used on board a zero-emission vessel with fresh water as the only by-product.

At the heart of what we do is our people.  We want to attract and retain the best people to ensure Ferguson Marine continues to go from strength to strength.

Our core values are Safety, Sustainability, Quality, Innovation & Excellence, Teamwork; and we are looking for talented individuals who live by and are ambassadors of our principles to support our future.
