Chip Stiebing, Shipyard Manager, stated “FMT reached yet another big milestone on August 24, 2017. Launching our first new boat is a big accomplishment for our shipyard. It was amazing to see everyone involved pull together making our first launch a success.”
The designer of the 120’ Hull vessel, Jeff Brumfield, Sr., Manager Boat Construction & Engineering, brings over 38 years of experience to the team. Florida Marine is the only company in the industry with this type of vessel. FMT made some improvements to the proved design of the boats already in our fleet and decided that it was time to start building these vessels at our own shipyard. “In-house building is much better as we have made many strides in the process, including quality control and expenditure of the build out. We will keep improving in our capability, quality and efficiency,” said Jeff.
