Specialised Commercial Vessels

We’ve designed a range of specialist vessels and workboats that surpass our customers’ needs.

Our design portfolio includes a range of special craft that include (but are not limited to) fisheries research vessels, high deadweight-capacity small cargo vessels, articulated tug boats, hovercrafts and barges, and patented Pentamaran hull form for high-speed RoPax and container vessels.

As independent designers, we can supply designs to any shipyard in the world, either working directly for an operator or as a sub-contractor to the shipyard. We have established relationships with many UK and European shipyards, some of which are currently building vessels to our designs.


We have an ever-expanding range of proven vessel designs in our portfolio, including vessels ranging from 9m to 220m in length and speeds of up to 70 knots.
