Ship Building Services

A full-service shipyard, we build a variety of boats and ships built and certified to IACS standards including middle size container vessel, aluminum hydrographic survey catamarans, fiberglass military patrol boats, aluminum sail boats and catamarans.

Aluminum Boat Building

Colorado Shipyard’s first major aluminum project was the M/V Sayah.  A 36-meter aluminum catamaran previously used in the Philippines as a ferry boat, it was converted to a crew transport supply vessel. This was an eight-month project. The catamaran hulls were used and converted as follows:

  • All new superstructure including accommodations and bridge
  • Re-engined with Caterpillar 2000 Hp main engines and fixed pitch Makado propellers
  • Totally new electrical systems and navigational equipment
  • Received a re-build certificate from Marina

In addition to the M/V Sayah, Colorado Shipyard has built numerous private aluminum pleasure boats including catamaran and mono hull designs. Colorado Shipyard also built two 24-meter aluminum catamaran hydrographic survey boats for the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (Namria) for use in the Philippines.
