Vard is a concept offshore-subsea construction vessel that features new form to integrate complex functionality with a specific character of a company’s brand.
The exterior of the Vard Near-future OSCV is designed to further increase the ship’s efficiency, durability and sustainability. The exterior details are integrated to unprecedented levels, and directly inform the layout of the ship’s interior. The configuration increases visibility from the bridge, lowers the center of gravity, and maximizes both fuel efficiency and deck space.
This OSCV features a new, bold and distinctive form factor that scales between different vessel types and sympathetically integrates complex functionality with the need for a strong, brand-specific character.

The wheelhouse/DP station hovers above the ship in a focus-enhancing ‘cockpit’ constellation. The traditional bridge below becomes a general-access, multi-purpose room. Both are units in a modular bridge design that can be utilized across multiple boat designs.
The helideck design integrates fully and seamlessly with the multi-purpose bridge and general ship architecture, allowing for easy access for visitors both arriving and departing. Built into the structure of the ship, the helideck is larger than conventional decks and easier and safer for helicopters to land on – a welcome feature in harsher conditions.
