With a shipyard background also comes a deep understanding of creating a design to a fixed budget, weight and a fixed time scale. Ad Hoc Marine Designs Ltd uses this collective experience to provide real working solutions to a budget and a time scale.
In this day and age of high-technology and often an over reliance on computer simulation, it is our shipyard back ground that fosters the notion of creating something from nothing. All design work is from first principals coupled with a vast database of real working design solutions to validate the design concepts. This forms the foundation behind the approach taken by Ad Hoc Marine Designs Ltd.
