The first thirty…
In 2018 Umoe Mandal celebrated 30 years of expertise, perseverance and innovation. From the very start in 1988, we were destined to design and build revolutionary vessels.
We have carried on the long and proud shipbuilding tradition of our region, aligning it with the best of modern technology and use of intelligent materials. In a class of their own, our Mine Countermeasure Vessels are still executing missions for the Royal Norwegian Navy, while our Skjold Class Coastal Corvettes still reign as fastest combat ship in the world. Our WAVECRAFT ™ series of high-performance Crew Transfer Vessels are daily proving their merit at major offshore windfarms.
Through the years, we have stood up to challenges and have embraced change in order to create new solutions that deliver value to our customers, bring sustainable growth to our organization and better the environment that nourishes us. We are determined to continue our voyage of growth and excellence.

...from the world's fastest warship to a seaborne helicopter.
We have reached and crossed new technological frontiers and now offer new generation of high-performance WAVECRAFT ™ Crew Transfer Vessels for the Renewables, Oil & Gas, Passenger and Defense sectors.
All WAVECRAFT ™ vessels are based on proven Surface Effect Ship and air-cushion catamaran design, which guarantees rapid transit time, excellent seakeeping and passenger comfort, superior fuel economy and reduced environmental footprint.
WAVECRAFT ™ vessels are equipped a sophisticated active heave compensation system, which ensure safe transfer and access to other vessels and installations offshore in up to 2,5 m Hs.
Structural design of our vessels presents low wake wash characteristics, enabling safer, high-speed operations in shallow and confined areas, while benefiting atmospheric and marine environments.
