- Our aim and decisiveness in ensuring the quality of constructed ships and respecting the specific wishes of the buyer enables us to maintain our business relationships and entice to return those who have previously decided to build in 3.MAJ. This is confirmed by our relationship with Wisby Tankers who have continued collaboration with the 3.MAJ shipyard, even after the process of restructuring and privatisation as well as its becoming part of the ULJANIK Group. We wish both the godmother of the ship success in fulfilling her tasks and the vessel calm seas - was concluded by Klaric.
