An integral part of the collaboration is the utilization of a “local” experienced Naval Architect. Adam Schwetz has been a leading Australian designer for over 20 years and specializes in aluminium vessels from 6 metres to 20 metres. Adam has a library of over 1000 designs and provides a complete package from the initial general arrangement and 3D modelling – right through to the full set of building drawings, full CAM/CAD nesting’s, stability and incline modelling. Schwetz designs are designed to meet any Australian survey requirements and all USL shipping codes or NSCV or equivalents. They also feature leading edge “Double Knuckle” reverse chine designs and are internationally renowned for their sea keeping abilities.
Partnering with Schwetz Design has been integral to the success of Saltwater Commercial Workboats and offers the ability to have a “man on the ground” locally who understands all the Australian survey requirements intimately and can liaise directly with the client to ensure 100% compliance and 100% suitability of end product produced.
Once the vessel design has been agreed upon, utilizing the latest CAM/CAD computer technology a full set of parts nesting’s are produced – which are then able to be sent to a CNC computer cutting device anywhere in the world. An example of this is pictured below-
In addition to this, Schwetz design also provides the boat builder a full set of “Builders drawings” which provide a step by step process to the building procedure. Some examples of these are also pictured below-
Here’s a few more examples too –
