David M. Cannell & Associates are able to draw on not only in-house research and development in designing new vessels, but also on knowledge of the performance and maintenance of vessels over extended periods of use, gained over many years surveying commercial vessels.
This ultimately leads to a design which not only meets the client's speed, powering and seakeeping requirements, but to a vessel which is more reliable mechanically and structurally throughout its lifespan, with least maintenance cost and time out of service.
We can undertake new designs from scratch, developing a bespoke solution from concept to production.
Alternatively we can use our library of existing designs, customising as necessary to achieve the required specification but saving time and money compared to a bespoke design.
Clients include Defence Ministries, Pilotage and Harbour Authorities and Coastguards, Fisheries Protection and offshore installation support companies. Our portfolio includes vessels as diverse as a 60m Pirate Galleon used as a film set, fast patrol vessels and pilot boats and a disabled access cruise vessel. A selection are described below.
