Hull forms are developed with the aid of special design software. Detailed design and drafting is performed with CAD programs. Component weights and centers are meticulously tracked during the design and construction process. Hull plates, bulkheads, and other components are cut on a CNC table for maximum construction efficiency and controlled fits and tolerances.
ABCO's Engineering Department has considerable experience in designing for water jet propulsion. In addition, ABCO has relationships with marine design companies for specialized and custom designs, design review, and technical support as required.
