Commercial Construction

NASSCO has extensive experience in all phases of new ship construction for commercial customers.

As a leading commercial ship designer and shipbuilder in the U.S., NASSCO has been responsible for the design and construction of 53 commercial ships since 1960. NASSCO-built ships have included a variety of propulsion plants including steam turbine, gas turbine, geared diesel, diesel-electric, and slow-speed diesel.

Working closely with customers — from earliest stages of conceptual and preliminary design, through contract design and detail design — NASSCO’s Engineering Department tailors a ship design to meet owners’ requirements while maintaining a highly producible, cost-effective product.
