Silver Ships designs and builds aluminum tow boats, including our popular Marine Assist version of the classic Ambar RHIB. Marine towing is a challenging business, and operators face a variety of obstacles on the water including need for equipment storage and reliable technology. Silver Ships aluminum tow boats are designed with the operator in mind, and can be customized based on the vessel’s operating location and workload.

Reliable Hull Design

Each boat’s hull is designed for strength, durability and to meet the ABS rules for high-speed naval crafts. Additionally, all of our vessels are built to ISO 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.

Featured Build

The 28-foot-10-inch aluminum tow boat, which is Alamitos Bay Marine’s first RHIB, was designed for security and stability. The 9-foot-4-inch beam and deep-V ocean-going hull form keep the boat steady and riding smoothly in trying conditions while on the job.
