AMC Search offers a comprehensive suite of services that support hydrodynamic and naval architecture projects using both numerical simulation and scale model tank testing.

We have decades of experience working closely with clients to test and validate vessel and platform design, stability and efficiency. We consult throughout the project lifecycle, from design concept to prototypes.

Our consultants are experts in propulsion system testing, seakeeping assessments, manoeuvering coefficients and predicting motions and loads. Their experience spans high performance yachts, catamarans, offshore support vessels, offshore platforms and beyond.
