INSPIRED BY

JOSEPH CONRAD KORZENIOWSKI

The shipyard site was named after Polish-British writer Joseph Conrad, thus the name Conrad Shipyard. The site was first established in 1942 in partnership with the German company “Boots- und Yachtwerft Friedrich Kropp Danzig Heubude.” Joseph Conrad (born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski; 3 December 1857 – 3 August 1924) is regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. His stories were inspired by his native Poland’s national experiences and his travels as captain in the British merchant marine. Up to this day, his stories are part of local shipbuilding folklore.
