Elliott Bay Design Group is ready to support our clients beyond the traditional naval architecture and marine engineering services. Our staff’s broad expertise includes former mariners, shipyard superintendents and regulatory inspectors who are experts at transferring designs from paper to reality at the best price for our clients. Some owners utilize EBDG to oversee dry dockings, overhauls and repairs to their vessels, counting on us as an economical, short-term extension of their own staff. Others recognize the added value of having the same responsible, responsive engineering group that develops the Plans, Specifications and Estimates oversee their implementation in the shipyard. On-site engineering detail development, clarification of intent to the contractor, quick resolution of unexpected problems, regulatory liaison, quality assurance, and change order negotiation are just a few of the things EBDG’s construction liaison representatives routinely do to help the owner get the job done quickly, properly and on budget. We also routinely conduct feasibility studies, provide bid review and support, offer model testing supervision, and participate in sea trials and delivery support.

At EBDG, we encourage responsible practices that conserve energy, reduce waste and minimize pollution. To that end we identify and evaluate, through sound engineering principles, advancements in environmental technology, approach and process. Those practices that are determined to be practical in service and are cost neutral or provide cost reduction will be adopted in our designs. To support this goal we actively educate our employees, customers and industry of the importance of making environmentally-responsible decisions.

Marine Engineering | Elliott Bay Design Group

Our depth of experience extends to all shipboard mechanical, electrical and piping systems, including HVAC systems, hydraulic systems, propulsion installations, stabilizer systems, and rudder and steering systems. Our “hands on” real world experience is applied to all of our marine systems design work, from feasibility studies and concept designs to contract designs, detail designs and construction liaison.


Naval Architecture | Elliott Bay Design Group

Examples include minimizing the use of hazardous materials and environmental contaminates in the design while seeking ways to minimize air emissions, energy use and discharges to water. We partner with owners and operators to design vessels that are ideally suited to a specific purpose by applying engineering solutions to meet the expressed needs of each client.


Analysis | Elliott Bay Design Group

To support waterborne transportation studies, EBDG has created ShipCalc, a proprietary modeling software which assesses the capital and operational costs of different vessel scenarios identified by service and implementation strategies. The art and science of naval architecture is governed by the environments of vessel operations, government regulation, shipyard capabilities and economic objectives.


Electrical | Elliott Bay Design Group

Whether we’re designing a new vessel or modifying an existing system, Elliott Bay Design Group brings decades of diverse marine electrical engineering experience to bear in satisfying each client’s specific needs. We take an integrated approach to designing complex automation and power systems, which can significantly reduce the time and cost of ship construction and maintenance.


Services | Elliott Bay Design Group

Elliott Bay Design Group combines our naval architecture and marine engineering capabilities with our analytical and design skills to deliver comprehensive solutions. We also facilitate our clients’ desires to incorporate environmental best practices in the design, construction, operation and eventual disposal of maritime vessels.
