“Our reputation for service, craftsmanship, and standing behind our work with a highly-skilled, experienced work force is the reason we continue to succeed as a company,” said Paul Engle, President of Bradford Marine. “Our company has very high employee retention. More than 50% of Bradford Marine’s current work force has been with the company a decade or longer. Many have celebrated their 15th, 20th, and even 30th anniversaries in providing master-level expertise in paint, carpentry, propeller, and custom specialty trades. Our experienced work force works closely together, combining many trades to bring the very best results and efficiencies, and this translates into value for our customers,” he added.
The first haul out in 1966 at Bradford Marine was a then-large yacht named the “Fontainebleau”, and since then the company has worked on yachts of all types and sizes. The company’s in-house service capabilities include full-service expertise working on everything from wooden vessels to the latest yachts. Bradford Marine’s full range of maintenance, repair, and refit services are undercover in its Fort Lauderdale shipyard.
