Superior engineering, modern design and state-of-the-art technology are the foundation of what distinguishes a Swiftships vessel.
52 COUNTRIES AND GROWING
Swiftships humble beginning started with its operations in the early 1950s, serving commercial clients and US Government. Our vessels have since been tested in every ocean, across all weather conditions, and on low to high threat missions. Today, we have a presence in 52 countries worldwide with strategic establishments in the Americas, Middle East, North Africa, and Asia.
• Morgan City, Louisiana: Specialized in aluminum and steel construction of military and specialty vessels, oilfield support vessels, ferry and pleasure boats up to 75 meters.
• New Iberia, Jeanerette: Construction of small to medium sized hulls and aluminum fabrication facility.
• ESRBC, Egypt: A co-production shipyard that allows Swiftships to offer competitive market solutions to clients with low-budget.
We have been supporting U.S. defense missions since we were founded and since that time have delivered hundreds of vessels and provided a wide range of support services. Currently we are working on the construction of 32 LCU-1700 vessels for the Navy and the service life extension of multiple LCU-2000 platforms for the Army.
In 2018 NAVSEA contracted Swiftships to design and build Landing Craft, Utility-1700 surface connectors. The project continues until 2027 will construct 32 LCU with additional vessels to be contracted for partner nations.
The new Swiftships landing crafts feature improves propulsion systems and cargo capacity, cheaper maintenance, less crew required to operate, and smaller but more powerful engines to reduce fuel cost. The improved fuel economy and personnel requirements will decrease the two greatest expenses on the existing LCU 1600 program.
Swiftships is known as a pioneer in developing reliable, effective and highly applicable solutions for automation and autonomy. Our Swift Autonomy Solution (SAS) dedicated team works with industry partners in advanced defense solutions and engineering to provide cutting edge and turnkey solutions to its clients. The department works continuously on R&D to deliver the most advanced autonomous platforms and artificial intelligence integration solutions to global network of clients.
Original Swiftships Academy started from the need for skilled craftsmen. It now grew to a solid organization that provides specialized training covering different programs in our US base and client’s location. Swiftships Academy unites number of academic and industry partners, and all programs are specially designed for client’s cases.

Swiftships has carried out co-production activities with the Egyptian Navy for nearly a decade.
Swiftships co-produced 15 crafts (to-date) on USN HSNC rules at ESRBC yard, and 500 Egyptian labor were trained to gain the necessary experience to construct and maintain EN crafts to meet critical mission requirements.
BOT program offering has enhanced Egyptian shipbuilding industry and increased localization by establishing a 5x the industrial base. Egyptian Shipyard is now capable to build steel and aluminum vessels, repair of up to 70-meter ships, mechanical slipway, floating dock and crane, advances paint systems.
Shipyard has coproduced over 15 Coastal Patrol Crafts (28 M CPCs) up to date and is further expending its capacity with plans of supplying vessels to African countries.
Swiftships 35m Fast Patrol Vessel (FPV35) is one of the most popular vessels in the world with over 33 hulls built to date. Swiftships FPV are considered leaders in the category due to is overall efficiency, high speed and maneuverability. We have built FPVs US Air Force, Iraq, Bahrain, Dominic Republic and others. Recently we upgraded FPV35 model with the most advanced missile system that will further increase the vessel’s multi-mission capabilities.
