Stern Landing Vessels


STS has developed, refined and proven a Stern Landing Vessel (SLV) design offering a superior alternative to conventional landing craft cargo ship designs intended for coastal shipping operations.

Commercial applications for the SLV are similar to conventional landing craft; however the SLV design has overcome the primary problems associated with conventional landing craft, including:

    1. Poor head sea capability due to bluff bow ramp, dramatically reducing speed
    1. Poor visibility due to bow ramp
    1. Crew discomfort and fatigue due to location of accommodation directly above machinery spaces
    1. Inadequate power available when de-beaching due to propellers working inefficiently astern, and the need to overcome the forefoot suction effect
    1. Poor stability due to the low profile GZ curve, low freeboard and shallow deck edge immersion resulting in limited deadweight capacity
    1. Required ballast due to high block coefficient and poor stability

Incorporating a shallow ‘V’ hull with two side pods, off-centre shafts and a beaching protection aft skeg arrangement, the SLV is now a finely tuned design that has evolved into a commercially and operationally unbeatable landing craft design.

Pusher Tug / Barge (ATB)


World’s first STS quad screw catamaran tug, ideal for shallow winding rivers and open sea conditions.  Tank tested in 2009 and proved 30% better than monohull tugs of the same power, pushing barges up to 15,000 DWT.
