What we can do

We have worked with most vessel types in close cooperation with various owners and shipyards across Europe, which allowed us to understand all the design and construction pitfalls specific to small specialised vessels.

Our clients can now benefit from fit for purpose and technically sound designs, meeting 100% of their operational requirements, or to put it in other words, peace of mind.


GLO has delivered the design and engineering for more than 40 newbuilds, servicing different market segments. Our holistic approach to ship design looks at the entire design circle, from feasibility and concept studies to workshop documentation and construction supervision on site.

Key Numbers

We have a very good understanding of all the challenges arising from designing small technical vessels such as space allocation, weight distribution or power predictions at high speeds. At the same time, we proved that we can deliver all these at competitive costs whilst also working flexibly with our clients to accommodate their needs and budgets. Our realisations, in numbers are:

  • Newbuild Projects


  • Complete Design Projects


  • Specialised Vessles


  • Electric Vessel Designs


  • BWTS Retrofits


  • Conversions


  • Stability Projects


  • Engineers



Key projects

We understand every project is unique, so we tailor our technical, planning and project management expertise accordingly. Spatial distribution, the integration of technologies, practical improvements, streamlined production, all these aspects are developed and coordinated to perfection to design vessels that exceed our customers’ expectations. Some of these vessels are presented below.

Multi Purpose Pusher

Multipurpose vessel fully designed by GLO Marine from concept to detail design lunched in 2018.
The vessel can push up to 4 barges and the on board crane can lift up to 5.3t at a boom extension of 14.1m.
Due to the innovative hull shape and design the vessel is fuel efficient and highly stable.
