Silver Ships Lands $8.2-Million Contract

Theodore-based aluminum workboat builder Silver Ships, Inc., was recently awarded an $8.2-million delivery order as a result of being awarded a firm-fixed-price indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity single award contract by the U.S. Navy’s Naval Sea Systems Command. The contract is for the construction and delivery of up to 110 Naval Special Warfare Surface Support Craft (SSC) and U.S. Coast Guard Special Purpose Craft, law enforcement vessels and other accessories, parts and training. The contract includes options that, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of the contract to $51.6 million. The project entails construction of five different vessel variants, all AMBAR series rigid-hull inflatable boats. The winning designs are based closely on Silver Ships’ in-service SSCs and were developed by the company’s in-house engineering design team led by senior Naval Architect Clay Danielson. The craft will be built over the next five years.
