Engineering and Design
ABCO’s Engineering Department takes great pride in developing a close working relationship with our customers during design, construction and acceptance trials. The Department 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).
Hull forms are developed with the aid of special design software. Detailed design and drafting is performed with CAD programs. Component weights and centers are meticulously tracked during the design and construction process. Hull plates, bulkheads, and other components are cut on a CNC table for maximum construction efficiency and controlled fits and tolerances.
ABCO’s Engineering Department has considerable experience in designing for water jet propulsion. In addition, ABCO has relationships with marine design companies for specialized and custom designs, design review, and technical support as required.
