More than 275 years ago, A. W. Niemeyer was founded and can look back on a rich company history. The former ironmonger has developed into an internationally renowned ship chandler. In the meantime, A. W. Niemeyer GmbH (AWN) has become an integral part of the water sports industry and has secured its place as European market leader. The company's divisions can be divided into six segments.
Sailing wear, leisure wear and boating accessories
As the saying goes: there is no wrong weather, only wrong clothes! Especially on the water, it is important to be prepared for everything in terms of clothing. Good sailing clothing is characterised by its durability, waterproofness and windproofness. But comfort and fashion should not be neglected either. That's why the top brands in our range, such as Musto and Marienpool, attach great importance to high quality standards and trend awareness in their sailing clothing. But also those who cultivate a sporty-chic clothing style will find what they are looking for at AWN: in addition to the water-repellent and trendy soft shell jacket, you can find swimwear, shorts, chic blouses or shirts for her and him in maritime style in our AWN online shop. Whether for the sea or leisure, in the AWN online shop you will find the right maritime fashion for every occasion.

In addition to lifejackets, life-saving equipment such as lifelines, distress signals, fire extinguishers and lifebelts are important boat accessories that ensure safety on board.

Originally, we were looking for the ideal RIB. From our point of view, a perfect boat combines top workmanship quality, high driving dynamics and fascinating design with a low price. However, since we could not find a RIB with these characteristics on the entire boat market, we founded ALPHA RIBS in Hamburg.
Our boats are an expression of our passion and experience on the water. We currently offer seven different rigid hull inflatable boats. All of them combine a sporty and elegant design language with the highest level of sailing comfort and dynamics.
As Hanseatic people, we place great value on reliability and trusting relationships with our customers. All boats are handcrafted and personally inspected by us before each delivery. In this way, we can meet our high quality standards and guarantee you maximum sailing pleasure.
My painting encompasses a wide range of abstract and figurative pictures of the "sea and more" in different techniques. I am also inspired by my own photos, whose motifs I find on journeys or in everyday life. As a former marine biologist and active sailor, the sea is often the starting point of my artistic journeys of discovery. I prefer to paint on large canvases, but every now and then I also discover smaller formats.

To protect a ship, yacht or boat from corrosion and osmosis caused by marine organisms, there is no alternative to antifouling. But if you are concerned about sustainability, you can now actually find an alternative among the antifouling products that is doubly convincing in this area:
We recommend and use antifouling from the Dutch manufacturer Finsulate ®, because:
The film completely dispenses with toxic substances
Is effective for a long time even if a watercraft is moved little.
