The Bilstein company of Glisten
(Spinward Marches/Glisten) has achieved a high reputation
for specialist starships of nonstreamlined types. Though constructing on
a small scale compared to builders like Ling Standard, Bilstein vessels
are sought after due to their attention to customers' special requirements.
Bilstein is the main supplier of private yachts to the March nobility, and this provides the bulk
of their output. Occasionally, however, a class of vessels such as the Leviathan
merchant cruisers are turned out, and several powered planetoid types have
also been constructed.
