Economical, Eco-Friendly, State-of-the-Art Vessels
For Today’s Marine Industry Needs

Cost-effective custom designs are what we’ve built our reputation on.

At every turn, the industry’s capital and operating costs are challenging shipowners and operators to find cost-cutting solutions to build and run their vessels yet still receive a top-quality product that will prove its return on investment. That’s why our customers rely on us to provide the most optimal vessel design and construction for their individual needs.

We intimately understand the requirements of shipping, offshore, government, research and military customers, and our 46 years of experience proves it.

Custom Boat Building Design and Method

Precise boat design – what you see is what you get: Designing your boat in 3D cyberspace is very much like pre-building it. Waste is dramatically reduced and system conflicts and complexities are easily identified and worked out. The boat is assembled from pre-determined and fabricated parts. Flat patterns taken from the 3D model are computer cut and bent. Tolerances are very tight.

Exacting control: every part and assembly created in cyberspace generates managed, realistic and related information. This results in control; cost control, detail control, weight and balance and performance control.

Accurate weight, balance and hydrostatics: each and every item is accounted for. Expected live loads and consumables can also be factored in to balance the boat.

Enhanced communication between builder and customer: images can be cut from the 3D model at any time during development. Items, parts, concerns and conflicts can all be observed and viewed from any angle. Gone from our process if the complicated interpretive 2D drawing.

Custom Aluminum Boat Building

There are two main methods of building boats with aluminum, the pull up method and the jigged or frame and skin method. In the pull up method, the hull is built first with all framing hand-fit to the hull after the hull construction is complete. In the jigged method, jigs are built before the boat is started to control the hull and framing. Allen Marine Inc. has developed a third method. Using our 3D modeling advantage, we combine the best of both methods, what we call self-jigging.
