Penguin Shipyard International

Penguin Shipyard International is an established builder of high-speed aluminium workboats, with more than 200 vessels in our portfolio of successfully completed projects.

At our professionally managed and well-equipped shipyards in Singapore and Batam, Indonesia
(45 minutes ferry ride from Singapore), we undertake a variety of newbuilding, repair and conversion projects. Our facilities include:

  • a 14,000-sqm fully concreted shipyard in Singapore with a 500-metric ton marine travelift, 2 purpose-built workshops and 3-5 repair slots;
  • a 50,000-sqm fully concreted shipyard in Batam with a 250-metric ton marine travelift, 4 purpose-built workshops and 4-6 repair slots.

Our flagship product is our proprietary Flex series of multi-role crewboats – starting with the original Flex-36 in 2006 and culminating in the current Flex-40 series – which have become the standard bearer for mid-sized crewboats in the offshore petroleum and maritime security industries.

With a build cycle of less than six months, from keel lay to delivery, we are the world’s fastest builder of crewboats. And with more than 40 crewboats scheduled for delivery in 2015, we are also the world’s most prolific crewboat builder.

In 2015, we have added further enhancements as standard features to our successful Flex-40SL and Flex-40SLC model types and their weaponised variant, the Flex Fighter.

The latest upgrades further augment the already-generous features of the Flex-40 series, which include expanded fuel/cargo/pax capacities, European-designed seats, re-engineered propulsion and a Palfinger knuckle-boom crane as standard equipment.

The Flex-40 series of crewboats are designed for a variety of “flexible” roles, including crew and cargo transfer, anti-piracy, security escort, fire-fighting, oil spill response, medivac and safety standby.

Owner-specified option include ballistic protection, gun mountings and racks, extra cabins, a dedicated hospital room, active interceptors and business class seats.

Go ahead. Flex your fleet today!
