Projects

Groot Ship Design is the independent specialist for all cargo vessel designs up to handymax size. The project portfolio of Groot Ship Design knows a wide variety of vessels, from small multipurpose sea-river vessels to worldwide operating special type cargo carriers.

Our design projects are developed in close cooperation with our clients, the future ship owners. The close cooperation with ship owners, exchanging the necessary relevant information, ensures the success of the project.

The engineering projects which Groot Ship Design performed for third parties are done with true dedication. For such projects it is possible the client delivers an existing design, if requested a design check is performed. Delivering high quality construction and piping or system engineering, allowing the shipyard to build efficiently, is our goal.

In many designs we have successfully introduced our Groot Cross-Bow®.
