Swede Ship - Fast Patrol Boats and High-Speed Vessels

Swede Ship specializes in building fast patrol boats, fast patrol vessels and offshore patrol vessels from aluminium and composite materials for naval and coastal security applications.

Customised fast patrol boats

Swede Ship provides a wide range of fast patrol boats in sizes ranging from range 10m - 40m with the flexibility to meet customers' technical and operational requirements. Currently Swede Ship has an on-going project in cooperation with a local yard for the building of twelve 26m fast patrol boats for the United Arab Emirates Navy.

A previous important project in this region has been the delivery of twelve 24m troop carrier vessels (type Ghannatha), also in cooperation with a local yard. This fast patrol boat design has also been built in an alternative version as a command, control and communication vessel. Other applications may be offered based on customer’s request.

Recently Swede Ship delivered five 26m vessels to the Swedish Navy. These vessels will be used for training of naval cadets in navigation, ship handling and seamanship. The vessels will also be capable of being used in sea rescue operations. The vessel is classed with DNV and meets stringent noise level requirements.

Fast search and rescue boats

Cooperation with Swedish and Norwegian search and rescue organizations has provided the basis for the development of optimized and safe designs meeting the highest standard for fast rescue boats. Several different types are available both in aluminum and composite materials.

Fast pilot boats

Swede Ship Marine has developed and built a number of specialized pilot boats for both the Swedish and Norwegian national administrations of shipping. These include both lightweight high-speed craft exceeding 35 knots as well as heavy-duty ice breaking pilot boats.

Swede Ship Marine has also the knowledge and capacity for construction and manufacturing other type of vessels such as offshore wind farm service vessels, ferries and passenger boats of various types and sizes.

Specialist fast patrol vessel and high-speed boat builders

Swede Ship Marine has three different specialized shipyards - Djupvik Shipyard, Swede Ship Composite and Swede Ship Yachtservice, all located on the west coast of Sweden. Djupvik concentrates on aluminum and steel production while Composite focuses on composite materials only. The remaining yard is dedicated to service and repair.

A defining characteristic of Swede Ship is our ability of being a complete yard with all major cornerstones in-house, including hull production, carpenters for the interior, a strong own electrical team including design and local close by cooperating partners.

The group has a long tradition in shipbuilding and one of the yards, Djupvik Shipyard has more than 100 years of history. Deliveries to the coast Guard and the Navy started back in 1937, welding in aluminium in 1950 and production in composite materials in 1979.

Swede Ship is certified according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
