Design Strength

Our team of international designers and Naval Architects constantly upgrades knowledge base to meet the ever rising demands of the Marine Industry. Designs are made using high-end software design techniques. Our hull designs have been the pride of many esteemed customers particularly for designs requiring high speeds. The hull forms have been proven for their stability and sea-keeping qualities. The most advantageous result of our advanced FRP technology is the high strength to weight ratio of the composite material thereby providing a light weight craft with better strength requiring least maintenance.

Production is continuously monitored by ISO Quality Assurance Division equipped with modern laboratory for all types of composite tests.
