Silver Ships Attending SOFIC 2018

Silver Ships is proud to work closely with various government entities and military organizations to provide the highest quality training and special operations vessels. Our ability to customize marine vessels to our clients’ specific needs allows us to offer solutions to problems that special operations forces often face in the field. We demonstrate the latest technology and innovative boat-building practices at trade shows, where we interact with attendees directly and learn about the challenges they face when it comes to watercraft.

The Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) is the premier venue for special operations forces professionals to interact with leaders and innovators in various technology and service realms. By attending SOFIC, we have the opportunity to learn more about what capabilities are most desired by these professionals and their respective organizations as we continue to tailor our building processes to best meet their needs. The educational aspects of the show, along with networking opportunities and face-to-face interaction with Special Operations Forces industry leaders, allow us to learn more about the needs of this specialized community and, in turn, produce the best possible products for them to effectively perform their duties.

Silver Ships has 33 years of boatbuilding corporate knowledge and currently has two multi-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts with the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) for the manufacture and delivery of the 8-meter twin engine High Speed Maneuverable Surface Targets (HSMST) and the 11-meter Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Swimmer Support Craft RHIB. In addition, our military veteran project management team has broad experience working with Naval, Expeditionary and Special Operations Forces. Silver Ships’ production history and seasoned project management team give us an advantage when it comes to building marine vessels for the many types of training and operational scenarios these forces will face on the water.

SOFIC 2018 takes place May 21-24 at the Tampa, Fla. Convention Center. We will be stationed at booth 1048 to answer questions about our vessels, the build process and more. Stop by to see us and make sure to interact with us and SOFIC on social media – follow us on Facebook and Instagram @SilverShips, and use #SOFIC to join the show’s conversation.
