Swede Ship specialises in building fast patrol, rescue and pilot boats in aluminium and composite materials for naval and coastal security applications.
Customised in-house design
A wide range of vessels are provided with the flexibility to meet customer’s technical and operational requirements.
Ships up to 50 metres long are developed in close co-operation with end-users and designs are adapted to their preferences by our own engineers. All major activities in the group are in-house, including design, hull production, carpenters for the interior, piping and machinery and a strong own electrical team.
Fast patrol boats
Many different types of military boats between 22 and 27 metres built by Swede Ship are found with the Swedish and UAE Navies.
Naval training and Fast Supply vessels as well as Patrol and Troop transport boats have been built for the Swedish Navy. Swede Ship has been awarded a programme for life time extension of the 22 metre patrol boat.
In the United Arab Emirates 26 boats have been built and later converted in close co-operation with a local shipyard. Swede Ship is responsible for the design and production of the first vessels in each series.
The following ships in a series are built locally based on kits and the assistance of Swede Ship. Troop transport, Mortar and Gun boats as well as Missile and Support vessels have been built and delivered to UAE Navy.
