Ships Systems Support
Since Austal USA was founded in 1999, the company has built and delivered 23 ships in this yard. The largest ships delivered to date are the Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ships for the U.S. Navy. Each ship, an aluminum trimaran, measures 419 feet in length. Austal USA also builds the largest high-speed catamarans built in the U.S. called the Expeditionary Fast Transport (EPF) also for the Navy.
Austal USA is a full-service shipyard offering design, construction and aluminum vessel service and repair. As the company continues to expand its sustainment and global services capabilities, it's well-positioned for new business with engineering, test and trials capabilities, and a waterfront facility on Mobile Bay. Austal USA also has offices in San Diego, Calif. and Washington, D.C.
