Laid down at the Blohm & Voss shipyard in Hamburg in July 1936 and launched in February 1939, Bismarck was the first of two Bismarck-class battleships built for Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine.
Bismarck displaced 41,700 t (41,000 long tons) as built and 50,300 t (49,500 long tons) fully loaded, with an overall length of 251 m (823 ft 6 in), a beam of 36 m (118 ft 1 in) and a maximum draft of 9.9 m (32 ft 6 in).
Bismarck was powered by three Blohm & Voss geared steam turbines and twelve oil-fired Wagner superheated boilers, which developed a total of 148,116 shp (110,450 kW) and yielded a maximum speed of 30.01 knots (55.58 kmh; 34.53 mph) on speed trials.
