Required to build large (Bomber and above) spaceships. Also repairs the ships from the regular Shipyards.
Large Shipyards let you build and repair heavy-class spaceships. The higher the level of your large shipyards, the more quickly you’ll be able to build and repair your fleet.
In order to build Large Shipyards, Giant Space Structures research has to be finished. Furthermore, the planet you build it on must have a Military Academy of level 10, a Lab of level 10 and an Engineering Bureau of level 10. Finally, construction of Large Shipyards takes up all of the orbital slots on the planet.

The build and repair speed of each level is always 20% higher than the previous level. Note the speed of each level Large Shipyards is equal to regular Shipyards at ten levels higher.
The ships built at Large Shipyard require it to be at a minimum level of 5 (Bomber), 7 (Heavy Cruiser and Battleship) or 8 (Landing Spaceship). Up to level 4, its only purpose is repairing ships. To get to level 5 requires 125500 metal, 168500 polymer, 243500 radium, 588 workers and a little over 5 days (almost 4 days with Module Constructions; almost 2 days if you also have a Construction Plant 10 on the planet).
The following Technologies affect the properties in above table:
- Plasma Welding +30% to spaceship maintenance speed.
- Zero Gravity Technology +30% to spaceship construction speed.
- Module Constructions +40% to construction speed.
- Composite Constructions +50% to building durability.
- Nanorobots +30% to spaceship construction speed.
Note: The research necessary to unlock each ship type is omitted from this list.
