Special Ships and Workboats

A&R is a long-term supplier to government agencies and authorities. Products such as the world’s most powerful and durable aluminium built Search and Rescue Boats for the German Lifeboat Association /DGzRS), hydrographic research vessels, pilot ships and many more serve in daily heavy duty.
Latest highlight is the successful application of the newly developed Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull (SWATH) for the German and Netherlands pilot system in the North Sea. This revolutionary, seaworthy and stable shiptype, marked under the name SWATH@A&R, is a superior alternative to many coast guard- surveillance-, hydrographic- and service-missions.
