POWER BOAT DESIGN
FRY Associates, Inc. (FRYCO)
Ed Fry's experience in custom yachts goes back to the early
sixties building steel yachts, many of which are still in
service today. His yachts have an excellent reputation for low
maintenance and dependability made possible through unique
design concepts in the systems. In custom yacht design FRYCO
has collaborated with owners and builders to provide the talent
necessary to take advantage of builder's standard details while
creating a design that meets or exceeds all of the owner's
expectations. Current motoryacht design projects in-house range
from 25 to 70 meters in length, from high speed CODOG
propulsion to long range cruising displacement yachts.
FRYCO's designs in commercial craft range from inland river
towboats/pushboats and barges, of which over 100 are in service
on three continents, to offshore oil patch work boats and
passenger vessels up to 205ft. (62.5m).
Through this broad range of experience we have accumulated
feedback from worldwide operations allow us to grasp the
client's operating requirements and make valuable suggestions
to enhance operations and increase profits.
We design to builder's standards or to class and/or
registration as requested by the client.
FIRE AND POLICE BOATS
Fire and police boats for cities, municipalities, and states
are always a challenge due to unique local environment and the
always present tight budget restraints. Because of tight
operating budgets, these boats are often not maintained to the
highest standard, therefore the systems must be simple,
reliable, and require minimum maintenance.
Often FRYCO is called on to write operating procedures,
train crews and provide spare parts so that when the boats are
commissioned the crews not only understand operation and
maintenance, but have the parts available to last them through
the first season or longer depending upon the client's
