Umoe Mandal was founded in 1989 as a purpose-built shipyard specializing in composite Fiber-Reinforced Plastic hull-building materials and components. Our head office and state-of-the-art facilities for design, engineering and production are located in Mandal, Norway. We are a privately-owned company and are part of Umoe AS.
We have grown steadily and today, we are the leading supplier of all-composite high-speed, lightweight air-cushion catamarans and advanced components for a variety of advanced applications in maritime, offshore and naval industries worldwide.
Our heritage of delivering pioneering naval vessels has set the ground-work for expanding into world-class commercial craft. Our latest contribution to the offshore Renewables, O&G, Passenger and Defense sectors is the WAVECRAFTTM series of Crew Transfer Vessels. These high-performance craft guarantee rapid transit time, excellent seakeeping and passenger comfort, superior fuel economy and minimal environmental footprint.
