KITS fabrication

Swiftships’ flexibility in developing programs to meet customer requirements is exemplified in our hybrid solutions for manufacturing ships. In this scenario, kits are produced in one of our facilities, and shipped to the client’s location for assembly. This option gives several advantages to our clients:

  • Access and use of proven existing and certified technical designs
  • Production of vessels with the same processes we use for in-house construction
  • Leverage our supply chain for reduced material cost
  • Reduction of labor costs
  • Save the client non-recurring costs for acquiring production tools
  • Save the client recurring operational costs for larger than needed production facilities  
  • Build local capabilities by learning how to manufacture with the same standards as our own facilities

 

ship testing, certification and delivery

All our boats are designed to meet ABS (or equivalent) certification and US Coast Guard regulatory requirements and undergo rigorous harbor and sea acceptance trials to prove the same.

Delivering ships from our production yards to the customer can be accomplished mainly in two ways:

  • The ship sails on its own power to the destination
  • The ship is loaded on a larger ship as cargo and delivered to a destination port

Either way Swiftships provides assistance to its clients with international logistics requirements, including export licenses as required by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and transportation.
