Shipbuilding & Repair

Shipyard Services

Penguin specialises in the design, construction, repair and maintenance of high-speed aluminium vessels, including:

  • Offshore crewboats
  • Armoured security boats
  • Patrol boats
  • Fire fighting search-and-rescue vessels
  • Passenger ferries
  • Windfarm support vessels

Our shipyards in Singapore and Batam, Indonesia (45 minutes ferry ride from Singapore), are professionally managed and well-equipped, featuring purpose-built workshops with overhead cranes, fully concreted grounds and marine travelifts. Our modern infrastructure, dynamic workforce and strong balance sheet enable us to build and repair a variety of vessels on tight deadlines.

Since 1995, Penguin has delivered more than 200 aluminium workboats, patrol craft and passenger ferries to ship owners around the world, including over 150 of our proprietary-designed Flex offshore crewboats and armoured security boats (Flex Fighter).

Our crewboats are jointly developed by our integrated in-house shipbuilding and ship management teams in Singapore, backed by more than two decades of experience.

We run a self-funded build-for-stock programme that features the Caterpillar-powered Flex-40SC MAX (from 2021), in both crewboat and security boat variants. We also undertake owner-specific build-to-order and repair projects for a variety of high-speed craft.
