What we do
Claus Hirsch, Fleet Manager
"Nordlicht II was developed with Incat Crowther in accordance with our exacting requirements. Incat Crowther developed the design, held a tender process to allow AG EMS to select the most suitable shipyard, and built the ship in a 3D digital model. This facilitated Penguin Shipyard to deliver a tailor made vessel. Incat Crowther are the ideal shipbuilding partner."
Adolfo Utor, CEO
"The design of the 123m Dual-Fuel Ro-Pax Ferry Eleanor Roosevelt was operationally driven to meet our needs. The quality of construction is outstanding.”
Martin Rice, CEO
"It was important to us that we built “our” vessel, rather than a fixed design. Incat Crowther allowed us the flexibility to incorporate changes and viewing these on 3D digital models really helped in that process. We could see how it was all going to work together during the physical construction."

Robert Smith, Owners Representative
"Incat Crowther’s innovative approach allowed us to develop the world first-of-type ShadowCat Hodor. Together we ran an international construction tender that allowed us to purchase with like-for-like bids, based on the same specification and layout.”
How we do it
Incat Crowther’s holistic approach to vessel procurement centres around an operation-specific design developed in partnership with the operator - Your Vision, Our Innovation. We perform an iterative process to communicate the project to stakeholders and allow the freedom to develop the project within set parameters. A functional design is then performed to define the vessel for certification.
Incat Crowther delivers the best value shipbuilding solution using Digital Shipbuilding technology. Technical risk is minimised and comprehensive information is generated. This allows options for manufacturing considering a prioritisation of factors. The process includes a Quality Management System to oversee manufacturing, and beyond commissioning, a 3D digital twin for lifetime maintenance.
Throughout the life cycle of a ship, Incat Crowther offers a full range of services to ensure efficient operations and regulatory compliance. As engineers and innovators, Incat Crowther is constantly in pursuit of developing new ideas and crossing new frontiers, without overstepping the mark to the bleeding edge. Incat Crowther is an ideal partner for the development of inspiring new solutions for difficult missions.
