Island Computer Systems Ltd have been supplying and supporting Maxsurf worldwide since 1985.

We also have an international network of experienced Maxsurf Trainers who have practical Naval Architecture background.

The Training focuses on good modelling practices, basic hydrostatic/stability calculations and structural modelling to give a good overall understanding of principles and possibilities.

The Training is Customisable specifically for each client and may be elementary or advanced.
