We use our extensive and practical experience, collective knowhow and modern design tooling to help you develop new marine assets and help maintain and upgrade existing ones. Our 35-strong team of highly qualified naval architects, marine engineers, designers and draftsmen is based in the Netherlands, United Kingdom and Singapore.

    We design tailored vessels, offer various marine consultancy services and provide innovative conversion engineering. Our aim is to exceed your expectations in terms of quality, innovation and reliability. We believe our way of working helps us build successful relationships with our customers and industry partners. We use our extensive and practical experience, collective knowhow and modern design tooling to help you develop new marine assets of quality and maintain and upgrade existing fleet. Listening to and sharing ideas with our clients is always our starting point. We look forward to being your partner in your journey from first sketch to delivery of your new vessel.

  • Legacy

    Our legacy goes back to the towage and salvage company Bureau Wijsmuller which started in 1906. Their engineering department designed all their vessels, including the well-known Tempest and Typhoon. Shortly after the company was bought by Svitzer in 2006, this engineering team continued independently as World Wise Marine. Following the merger with offshore vessel design specialists IMT, the name Offshore Ship Designers was adopted for all design and engineering activities.

    This means that OSD-IMT, as we’re now called, can fall back on over 100 years of experience in the international maritime arena. This experience is available to you through our designs. Our team consists of a good mix of young and old engineers making sure our legacy is passed on and continuously built upon with current and future technological insights.
