Bristol Harbor Group, Inc. (BHGI) is a full-service naval architecture, marine engineering, and consulting firm located in Bristol, RI. BHGI has been in business for over 25-years and has produced numerous designs, to which hundreds of vessels have been built. We specialize in commercial vessel design and consulting, and have experience with tugs, barges, Articulated Tug & Barge (ATB) units, passenger vessels, dredges, and floating dry docks. 

Recent projects BHGI has completed include the design of the Breaker II, which was built and delivered last year to the New York Power Authority (NYPA) in Buffalo, New York. BHGI developed the Breaker II specifications and bid drawing package in collaboration with the operators, including significant detailed system design and layout to provide improved ergonomics for the crew. BHGI also completed the detail design of a new floating dry dock for the United States Army Corps of Engineers, which will replace the aging, 400-ton drydock 1015 at the Ensley Engineer Yard in Memphis, Tennessee. The improvements resulted in updated modern controls and increased efficiency.

BHGI is currently working on numerous projects including a high-speed foil assisted catamaran, various transport, and cargo barges, as well as multiple projects for the defense industry.
