Silver Ships aluminum hydrographic survey boats are designed and manufactured to accommodate specific hydrographic surveying requirements and individual customer missions. Our team has built several hydrographic survey boats as both catamarans and as deep-vee monohulls (our Endeavor Series). We offer packages specifically for customer survey equipment and complete turn-key survey solutions, with training and calibration included.

Reliable Hull Design

Each boat’s hull is designed for strength, durability and to meet the ABS rules for high-speed crafts. Additionally, all of our vessels are built to ISO 12217 category B stability standards, unless otherwise noted.

All-Welded Aluminum

All boats have underwater seams that are continuously welded inside and outside. We only use 5086 H32 Grade Aluminum plates in our boats, and each bottom plate is a minimum ¼-inch thick.
