Led With Passion For
Shipbuilding and Innovation
Redefining the new possible in the maritime industry
Since 1940′, Swiftships was led by the vision to provide the most innovative and advanced practical solutions for our clients’ critical missions.
“My vision was to create a ship with an aluminum hull that excels in shallow water military engagements. Prior vessel designs for shallow waters were either slow or wooden, leaving a large gap in US naval capability for effective inland water navigation.”
Fred Steward, Founder, 1942
“My whole life and passion have been building boats. We have been willing to drive our flag and new solutions into many different countries around the world.”
Calvin A. LeLeux, Leader & Mentor
As years go by, we at Swiftships reflect on the heritage and life of Mr. Calvin A. LeLeux (1945 – 2019). His wisdom, vision and drive carried the foundational principles that personify Swiftships’ strong legacy. We want to maintain that legacy and spirit.
