History

Stolvic Werft's shipyard in Doppeltzufluchten.

Helmuth Gerd von Scherer founded Scherer Werft in 7358 as a wooden shipbuilding concern with just a simple wharf on the harbor front near what was then the outskirts of town. As a second son, Helmuth was a master shipwright but he had access to trees from the family estate in upper Leefit. He soon made a name for himself and his boats were highly sought after by fishermen. Meanwhile, Reinhardt Heiner had become a successful steam engine maker and, in 7367, Heiner Maschinenbau and Scherer Werft merged to become Stolvic Maschinenbau-und-Werft.

With the start of the first Tandem War in 7446, the company concentrated strictly on shipbuilding, no longer selling steam engines for non-marine use, and Maschinenbau was dropped from the name. At the same time, the previously private company offered stock shares for sale through Börse Stachelort. The increased capital allowed the shipyards to begin producing steel ships and, more importantly, warships for the Stachelortan Navy. The Tandem Wars (7446-49 and 7465-73) were not kind to the Stachelortan fleet and the Duchy of Stachelort did not have funds to replace all of the lost ships but Stolvic Werft found new markets in commercial freighters. By the end of the Tandem Wars, the yards no longer built wooden ships and the Scherer and Heiner families were no longer involved in the business.

Today Stolvic Werft has a robust market for commercial fishing boats, freighters, and oilers. The yard still builds warships from time to time and Stolvic steam engines are well known and respected in the steamship world. The yards have also built a few yachts in their day. The shipyard has grown from the original wharf to five drydocks of varying sizes, two repair wharfs and two multi-purpose quays. There are several machine ships and fabrication buildings for ship construction and repair as well as the steam engine works. The company has its own powerhouse for steam, heat, and electric generation.
