Shipco 360 Limited T/A Shipco Shipyards and Shipbuilders: Launched to offer the very best in modern shipbuilding.
The original Shipco – Marine Constructors Limited was placed in liquidation and removed from the NZ company register in 2012. Sadly this should be considered very disappointing, as this was a sure indication of the health of the shipbuilding industry in New Zealand.
New Zealand akin to Australia has witnessed the rapid decline in the number of local shipyards, it can be considered fair and reasonable, to attribute this decline to the cost of local construction and the competitiveness of international shipyards who specialise in particular market sectors, for example tugboat building – The gargantuan amount of technology utilised by modern tugboat construction, backed by large teams of highly skilled and proficient in-house mechanical and electrical engineers make, smaller shipyards outdated and non-competitive.
Our company Shipco 360 Limited T/A Shipco Shipyards and Shipbuilders, recognised that is was impossible to compete against the likes of companies who can deliver several state of the art harbour tugboats per month, as such Shipco Limited pronounced it was an unequivocal decision to team with leading parent shipbuilding companies, who offer the very latest designs with construction in world class shipyards.
Utilising excellence in Naval Architecture, with the likes of Robert Allan Limited and Southerly Design, Shipco 360 Limited can now offer the highest development in vessels that range from aluminium workboats, fishing boats and pilot launches through to steel harbour tugboats, workboats and landing craft.
With operational yards of choice located in Europe, Australia and Asia, Shipco 360 Limited’s overture is to be the very best when it comes to technology, build quality and investment value.
With our headquarters of Shipco 360 Limited remaining in New Zealand, ensures that our customers continue to deal with a local registered New Zealand Company, and are backed by local market knowledge and support.
