National Fisherman


Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering firm Elliott Bay Design Group has opened its Southeast Alaska office in Ketchikan.


"This move enables us to better serve our Alaska clients and to establish new relationships and deepen existing ones," Brian King, Elliott Bay's vice president of engineering, said in an announcement. "We hope to enjoy beneficial business partnerships in the state for some time to come."

Elliott Bay designed the Inter-Island Ferry Authority ferry Prince of Wales and is involved with the Alaska Marine Highway System's design process for the new Alaska Class Ferry Day Boat project.

Villiott notes that Elliott Bay also supports the commercial fishing vessel and tug and barge operators in Alaska.

According to the company, the new office, at 7559 N. Tongass Highway, aligns with the firm's goals of supporting clients that operate in Alaska, and will serve as a "regional resource for quick-reaction field engineering."
