"Great design makes the world a better place"...
Here at S C McAllister & Co Ltd we design unique vessels, tailored to your requirements and cost effective to build, that you can be proud to own. We have been at the forefront of commercial fishing and work boat design for over 35 years, specialising in steel displacement vessels from 9 to 33 metres.
From our "Clyde built" origins in Campbeltown to the present day, S C McAllister & Co Ltd has provided a personal and practical service. We are small enough to care and will work closely with you to design a capable boat that suits your needs.
Success breeds success. Good design should not be overlooked, all parts of the design need to be considered in conjunction with each other which forms the iterative process. We always strive to optimise performance and value our reputation for Seakeeping, Capability and Efficiency.
