Platform Supply Vessels ("PSV") are designed specifically to transport cargo to offshore oil rigs and platforms and when converted can perform a variety of tasks to support offshore operations. PSVs are similar to AHTS vessels, except that PSVs do not have winches, have a closed stern and generally have large decks.

Some PSVs have been purpose built or converted to undertake a particular job such as seismic survey, flexible pipe laying or repair operations and may have helidecks to enable passenger transport to and from the vessel, especially in remote locations.
