Anyway you measure success- experience, performance, efficiency or in numbers-Textron Marine Systems'
Surface Effect Ships have it covered.
Experience-Textron Marine Systems has over 20 years in
SES technology and construction. At last count, we logged over 65,000 hours in service transporting commercial and military passengers and cargo.
Performance-Textron Marine Systems' Surface Effect Ships have operated in North America, South America, Europe and the Middle East. Our SES100B holds the U.S. speed record for
Navy surface ships.
Efficiency-Textron Marine Systems' experience edge has helped reduce cost of operation and amount of maintenance required for Surface Effect Ships. Our latest SES design for an auto/passenger ferry carries on the tradition.
Numbers — Textron Marine Systems has designed, built or had produced under license, more Surface Effect Ships than anybody in the United States. Our successes include SES vessels, used to transport crews to offshore oil rigs; WSES Coast Guard
Patrol Boats, employed in the war against drugs; the Jet-Rider and the Model 4000, innovative ferries currently in service overseas and now available in the United States.
So anyway you look at it—our SES program is snynonymous with success.
