The origins of Havyard Leirvik started in 1918 as Løland Motorverksted by the founder Jonas Løland

In 1918, a patent slip was built below the schoolhouse in Leirvik in Sogn. This was the start of the more than 100-year-old shipyard by the Sognefjord.

Like many other small repair yards in Norway, Løland Motorverksted started building ships, and the first newbuilding “Loftesnesferja” was delivered in 1938.

A new and modern shipyard was built in 1976 when activity had increased over the years. In 1979, the yard was bought by Kleven and partners, and became a member of the Kvaerner Group in 1990. The yard gradually became known as a high-quality builder of offshore and fishing boats.

In 2000, Per Sævik bought the yard through Havila from the Kvaerner Group, and founded Havyard Leirvik. Per Sævik is an experienced sailor and captain of fishing and offshore vessels. He has founded many shipping companies, including Havila Shipping ASA, which is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.

 A milestone in the yard's history was when NB 088, with Havyard Design 858 won the “Offshore Support Vessel of the Year Award” in 2011 from the Offshore Support Journal (OSJ).
