First contact & pre-build

From the start, South Boats IOW works with each and every client to define the requirements and expectations from each proposed vessel. A package of information is produced including bespoke general arrangement drawings and specification accompanied by any relevant technical documentation. South Boats IOW prides itself on its technical resource and capability to turn each client's aspirations into reality.

Through build

Through build, each project is carefully managed by each trade and by production management and project teams to ensure that every vessel is delivered on time and on budget. Regular reviews between the project team and client representatives are encouraged and best efforts are made to incorporate through build variations to ensure the delivered vessel exceeds clients' expectations.

Commisioning & trials

All vessels undergo an intensive period of dockside commissioning and sea trials prior to delivery to ensure a smooth a handover to each client and their crews. All equipment is carefully commissioned and recorded by South Boats IOW personnel in conjunction with equipment suppliers prior to delivery to ensure conformity with suppliers warranty terms. Once the vessel has successfully completed commissioning and trials it will be certified and accepted by the classification authority (if applicable) and the client.
