Glosten offers vessel design services from initial concept through detailed design suitable for production. Our vessel design portfolio includes passenger vessels, tugs, barges, research vessels, workboats, and special-purpose platforms. Design is just one aspect of vessel acquisition. We support clients through shipyard qualification and selection, bid review and contract negotiations, construction management, and test and trials. We approach ship design as a process of understanding and articulating the owner’s desires and requirements. Our job is to make sure that the design is workable and to fully describe the solution for efficient construction.
The Port of Portland hired Glosten to develop a comprehensive design package for repowering Dredge Oregon. Glosten's repower efforts will reduce the dredge's diesel particulate emissions by nearly 90%.
