Since we started building Plate Boats, we found there is a demand for certain type of boats in the Asian & Pacific Region. Once we started to cater for this market, we have developed (and are still developing more) boat models that are specifically designed for these markets, improving not only the relation of quality and cost, but also looking at fuel quality and safety. We make sure that these boats as hull or in Kit form can be shipped efficiently in standard shipping containers (20' and/or 40'). Our new BtB marine 6m longboat will be added to our website shortly.

Our boats can be surveyed for professional use if required by local authorities. All boats are fitted out towards the clients specs and can be ordered plain or painted with or without graphics / logo's. For certain remote operations, basic manual(s) are supplied.

Boat Kits (Flat Packs)

All these models are also available as Kits. These Kits come with a instruction manual and welding schedule. In this schedule there is an option for surveyors to sign off at different stages of construction, might this be required. The kits are packed on a pallet ready for shipment and all parts are numbered conform instruction manual.

Raw Hulls

A very cost-efficient way of purchasing a boat can be as a raw hull: ready to be fitted out by the client. All fit-out can be purchased through BtB marine for very compatible rates as an incentive for purchasing the hull. Boats can be build up to different stages, depending on clients requirements, or in order to fit the boats more efficiently in a shipping container.

Fuel System

Because it is not possible to get good quality fuel everywhere, BtB marine has designed their fuel system, in such a way that it is easy to access the tank and drain any excessive water that might be in the (local) fuel.

Motor Mounting

As some of our boats operate in a remote area, a twin motor set-up is available for most models. If required our boats can be fitted out with an extra motor-bracket that will support an auxiliary outboard to help optimize the safety of the persons on board on longer trips.



On site construction

If required, our tradesmen can be sent on-site anywhere in the world to assist local tradesmen or work 'stand-alone' with our own tools & materials. We have a complete 'workshop' inside a 20' container. We can also help with setting up a workshop and train local workers to assemble the boats by them selves. Clients can purchase all needed equipment through BtB marine as well.


BtB marine offers training to (local) boat operators. In most countries there is no licence required for boats under 6m. BtB marine recommends all persons to comply with their local boating regulations and to be familiar with safe boating practices, along with reviewing the manual(s) applicable for their boat and safety gear operation. If help is required, we can provide customized training specifically for the area of operation.


BtB marine can program the electronic (navigation) devises to be ready for use in the area of operation. Not only by adding (local) charts into the GPS, but also programming routes if required.
