Aalborg Shipyard (Danish: Aalborg Værft A/S) was a shipyard located in Aalborg, Denmark.

Founded in 1912[1] by brothers Immanuel Stuhr and Peter Philip Stuhr, the shipyard was founded under the name Stuhr Engine and Ship Construction, a development of their father's business. From 1937 until the yard closed in 1988, it was owned by J. Lauritzen A/S.

  • Aalborg steelworks
  • Aalborg Industries (Boilers)
  • Norks Industrial Services (NIS)
  • Danish Railway Club (Limfjord path).

In 2005 the former yard area was cleared, the only building surviving demolition the 1912 machine shop, while the dry dock continues yacht production, leased by Danyard Aalborg. Today, the former yard is covered with new home and office developments.
