Marine Services

Sma’knis Marine Technical Services has many years experience of providing clients with bare boat charters for research purposes, surveying, as well as touring. Sma’knis Marine is dedicated to helping the marine industry grow in an environmentally conscious manner. This dedication is why we have acquired the Alutasi “The first hybrid vessel in the Maritimes” as well as partnered with NSCC Applied Energy Research to conduct a feasibility study on converting our 5 RHIBs to electric propulsion. Sma’knis strives to be an industry leader in electric propulsion technology in the Maritimes. Sma’knis envisions a “smart harbour” and hopes that their new location at Dartmouth COVE (Centre for Ocean Ventures & Entrepreneurship) will help bring this vision to a reality. With Sma’knis marines’ versatile fleet we are able to help any researcher, scientist or organization achieve their mission in the marine industry.”
