Quick-Start Guide

You need a Dry Dock, Barge, or Workboat, but don’t know where to begin. Unless you can find one for sale that is exactly what you want, you will need to have one designed and built. Luckily, the process is simple:

Step 1  Vessel Purpose and Requirements

JMS will work with you to determine and define the purpose and specific requirements of your vessel, such as: Overall dimensions, Capacity, Features, Systems, Where it will operate, Draft restrictions, Regulatory issues, Your Budget and Schedule. JMS will provide you with a cost proposal for all 5 Steps and a schedule showing how long each will take.

Step 2  Concept Design

Once the requirements of the vessel are defined, JMS will develop a Concept Design package including basic drawings, engineering calculations, and various estimations.

Step 3  Detail Design

Once the concept design is finalized, JMS will develop a Detail Design package (sometimes called a Contract Design package) that includes all finalized, detailed drawings, engineering calculations, and technical specifications sufficient to solicit accurate bids from shipyards.

Step 4  Shipyard Bids

JMS will assist you in the development of a shipyard solicitation that includes the above engineering and design package for the purposes of issuing a Request for Proposals from qualified shipyards to construct your vessel. JMS will assist you in answering bidders’ technical questions about the specification and drawings. JMS will also assist you in the technical evaluation of shipyard proposals.

Step 5  Vessel Construction

After a shipyard contract is awarded, JMS can provide owner’s representative services and onsite shipyard oversight support as needed. Ship checks are performed to ensure the shipyard is following the technical specification and good shipbuilding practices and that any proposed design and schedule changes are in your best interest and do not impact any of your requirements.
