Oma Slipp & Mek. Verksted

Oma Slipp & Mek. Verksted was established as a subsidiary company in 1981, specialising in the repair and maintenance of crafts ranging in size up to 40 meters.

The yard operates two slipways; one indoor slipway enables year round work sheltered from the elements whilst one further outdoor slipway adds flexibility.

The company has a highly skilled multidiscipline team and executes maintenance, repair, modification and conversion projects to the fast ferry operators. A new and functional engine workshop was erected in 2007. This enables the company to offer a complete range of services including maintenance of large diesel engines.


Oma Baatbyggeri

Having gained nearly 70 years of experience with the use of aluminium, the company emerges today as a leader in the development, design and construction of lightweight, high-speed aluminium catamarans.

Fast Ferries engineered and built by Oma Baatbyggeri are the most energy efficient measured in kWh / passenger km. Continuous development with a very strong focus on weight, hull design and equipment selection has pushed our designs to the forefront when it comes to low energy consumption.

The building blocks in our design is continued focus on technological development, seaworthiness, low weight and low fuel consumption.

Why aluminium?

Natural and sustainable
Aluminium is a natural and sustainable material. It can be recycled over and over again. Aluminium is the material of the future. A carbon fiber vessel in comparison is a future waste problem.
Aluminium is a fireproof material. This translates into extra safety for the passengers and the crew in the unlikely event of for instance an engine room fire. A carbon fiber hull by contrast is highly flammable.
Easy repair
Aluminium is a strong material, however in the event of an accident; it is a material that is straightforward to work with and to repair. Any type of hull and structural damage can be repaired with ease.
Low weight and high strength
Aluminium combines low weight with high strength, a perfect combination when designing reliable and fuel efficient high-speed catamarans.


We are continuously working on optimising our high speed ferries for sustainability, safety and reliability. Aluminium is the most environmentally friendly and flexible construction material for high speed ferries with the lowest lifetime cost.
