programs

Swiftships started building utility vessels in 70’s and since than we built over 50. The first aluminum hull, LCU40 class landing craft was built in the 1980’s. The ships have a traditional landing vessels’ design with a forecastle break at the beginning of the open cargo deck. The drive-through cargo deck divides the forecastle into port and starboard sections. A 15-ton crane is located on the starboard forecastle, and a canopy-covered bridge sits at the fantail.. The ship can carry up to 100 tons of fuel and 88 tons of water.

Landing Craft Utilities were built for the Bahrain and Venezuelan Navies, and ships are still serving in the naval fleets.
