I think you will find that the upper deck superstructures of all 10 ANZAC frigates built for Australia and NZ were made in NZ, as were the superstructures of the 2 OPVs. Also, all 4 of the NZ IPV's were built in NZ.

Thanks for the clarification. Deckhouses are useful. I wouldn't, however, call inshore patrol vessels "major warships".

The selection of a builder depends on the customer needs as well as on project.
