Aluminum Boat Builders
Throughout our history, we continue to fulfill our mission statement by producing high-quality aluminum workboats for military, federal, state and municipal governments as well as commercial applications through collaboration with highly skilled design, engineering and production resources.
We aim high – we were the first to produce Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIBs) in North America – and we keep our customers’ needs top of mind. Each Silver Ships boat can be completely customized to fit a wide variety of mission-specific needs.
With our corporate headquarters located in Theodore, Alabama, our 95,000 sq. ft. production facilities are situated on a 25-acre manufacturing site and utilize state-of-the-art boatbuilding equipment.
Our on-site accredited Naval Architect and Engineering staff designs all boats within a three-dimensional modeling and hydrodynamic design software to ensure safety and operational usage in design, development, design evaluation and calculations throughout all stages of construction. From the initial design to the final send-off, every step of the boat building process is completed in one location.
