Multicat 3515 has also been painted there. The documentation and model were entirely made by the Safe shipyard design office, the so-called PR. The construction of the tugboat is supervised by the Bureau Veritas classification society.

The second vessel being built in the Safe shipyard is a multifunctional RSV 3315 tug (NB 571795). This one is also ordered by Damen Shipyards Hardinxveld, which will take care of its equipment.  Complete drive systems and full pipe systems will be installed in Gdansk. The tug will also be painted there. This is the second vessel of this type built by the Safe shipyard (the first one was handed over to the same shipyard in 2016). Documentation and creating model, after modifications taking into account the shipowner's comments, were entirely carried out by the Safe shipyard design office, the so-called PR. The construction of the tugboat is supervised by the Bureau Veritas classification society. Vessel will be transferred to the Dutch shipyard in March.

The third unit that Safe is currently building is fish process vessel. The ship was ordered by the Norwegian shipyard Fitjar Mekaniske Verksted AS. This prototype unit with the construction number NB 42 (symbol HFMV50) will be 49.7 m long and 11 m wide. The processing vessel, also used for transporting fresh fish over short distances, will be equipped with, among others, six RSW tanks with a capacity of 600 m3.

The remaining three vessels built by Safe are fishing trawlers. They were ordered by Damen Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam.
