This research provides insight into the important role of experienced sailing officers in ship-building projects. The aim of this exploratory case study was to develop an understanding of mechanisms used to facilitate knowledge transfer. We identify five shipbuilding phases as scoping, specification, negotiation, construction, and acceptance testing. Further we identify the important role of experienced sailing officers in knowledge transfer between ship owner, shipyard, and the shipbuilding project. The original value of the paper is the use of knowledge management theory to extend the scientific research and theory of shipbuilding and to inform project managers on knowledge transfer mechanisms.
