About Us

Since 1987, Vanguard Composite Engineering Pte Ltd has made a name for itself as a trusted and reliable global lifeboat brand. The Company manufactures conventional and hyperbaric lifeboats, fast rescue boats, davit systems and a host of other safety equipment for the marine and offshore industries. All Vanguard's products are designed and manufactured to IMO SOLAS 86 and are certified by a number of classification societies. Vanguard is quality approved to ISO 9001.

In 2013, Vanguard has become the subsidiary of Malaysian based integrated engineering solutions provider Destini Berhad. Tapping into Destini's expertise, Vanguard can continue investing in product innovation to enhance the customer's satisfaction and also to increase its global reach by utilizing Destini's existing facilities in Singapore, Malaysia, China, Middle East and Australia.

Vanguard believes people at sea are only as safe as the equipment they operate. Our R&D team has constantly innovated and improved the product in order to provide a top-notch safety and quality equipment to every seafarer. This year, Vanguard has successfully clinched its first deal with JFD (James Fishes Divex) to supply 8 Hyperbaric Lifeboats to a Singaporean company. This marks a major achievement for us and reinforces our position as a specialist lifeboat and rescue boat supplier to the Marine and Oil and Gas markets.
