INNOVATIVE DESIGN. SMARTER MANUFACTURING.
Our long history of boatbuilding dates back to the 1940’s when ABCO first started. Over the decades we’ve had the distinct honour of designing and manufacturing boats for the Canadian Coast Guard, the Royal Canadian Navy and most recently, we’ve partnered with XOCEAN to provide expertise and manufacturing of Uncrewed Surface Vessels (USV).
Our reputation for quality and excellent craftsmanship is well established.
We take great pride in developing close working relationships with our customers during design, construction and acceptance trials. The team has a detailed working knowledge of all marine standards, including Transport Canada (TC), American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), and American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC).
DURABILITY AND PERFORMANCE
Aluminum is particularly well suited for boat building, and has many advantages compared to other boat building materials:
- High strength to weight ratio
- Does not rot, chip, or rust
- Does not soak up water
- Ease of customization
- Very durable and resistant to impact damage
- Paint required only for cosmetics or antifouling
- Ease of repair
- Minimal maintenance required
