The global shipbuilding industry faces several challenges, notably excess supply and capacity, which pressurises the industry's economic viability in some parts of the world.  

Shipyards and boat builders in Europe and North America were severely affected by the 2008 global financial crisis.  More recently, the war in Ukraine and the disruption to the supply chain due to the Covid-19 pandemic have resulted in low levels of new orders.

Persistent worldwide overcapacity may encourage governments to support through subsidies and other measures and spur different market-distorting practices.  While this may create major structural problems in delivery, these potential market distortions can be addressed through close cooperation and the active involvement of industry.

Our longstanding partnership approach has caused a transformative change in the industry through competitive solutions and constructive advice.  We work with global shipbuilding enterprises to drive vessel design and engineering innovation.  Our experience encompasses the entire shipbuilding sector. 

We can help you develop innovative, cost-effective, workable solutions to technological challenges while integrating ourselves seamlessly into your existing team.

Our design process focuses on three key areas: hull form design, structural design, and engineering consultancy.  Our services encompass the entire spectrum of concept design, naval architecture, and inspection, and we will work with you at all stages through contract, Class level, detail and bid to launch.

Proven designs and bespoke solutions

Our portfolio below demonstrates the breadth of our work.  Some are designed with performance in mind, requiring us to focus on weight, balance, and energy efficiency.  Others incorporate technology geared toward providing passengers with all the technology they can handle and a stable, comfortable, and well-appointed vessel.  All must comply with existing and upcoming regulations and meet, or exceed, safety standards.

We use our wealth of expertise in technological innovation to provide intelligent solutions to the diverse requirements of a demanding market.  We keep the most advanced techniques at the forefront and provide an unrivalled bespoke service on demand.
