NSSB has been specializing in the aluminum repair of commercial and pleasure vessels since its inception in 2015.
During this period the yard has also carried out full refit and hill extensions of 2 large (45m+) aluminum catamaran ferries. This included full reengineering packages and outfitting.
The yard also in conjunction with our Partner in Batam Indonesia constructed a 57m Catamaran RoRo with a high tensile steel hull and aluminum superstructure.
It is with this knowledge and experience that NSSB was chosen by Suncraft International Pte Ltd and the Nigerian Navy to build and commission 4 units of Fast Patrol Craft.
Besides the yards, experience, and ability with aluminum vessels, the location and tax-free status of Langkawi island assisted in the decision of the Client to contract NSSB for their build.
Langkawi island is free from import and export taxes thus reducing costs for the Owner. The island also is relatively centrally located in Asia with proximity to major shipping ports for delivery and exporting of vessels to other parts of the World. Easy access with the convenience of an international airport as well as international class hotels and resorts.
Owners and their representatives and crew are also able to enjoy the tropical tourist nature of the island during their working stay while vessels are under construction.
NSSB works in close collaboration with vessel designers from around the world with designs ranging from small RHIBs to large RoRo vessels.
At NSSB, We believe in meeting our client’s needs are the most important factor. So, we promise to provide efficient, quality and friendly services for boat repair and maintenance by supplying cutting edge tools, heavy machineries, good workmanship and quality materials at very attractive price.
