A majority of the Megayachts, APB works on are ABS and Lloyd’s Registry class vessels, which requires our welders to be fully class certified. These certifications are very expensive to obtain and maintain.
APB provides 1yr, 5yr, and 15yr class surveys to a variety of vessels. APB performs in house valve inspections and testing for all the class societies and valve suppliers.
APB has been primarily focused in the yachting industry and on boats of all sizes and uses. APB believes that its strong partnerships with industry providers helps us gain trust with clients and determine what can be done for the client to enhance the yachting experience. Educating staff so that APB is viewed as a place a client can go to for answers, ideas, suggestions, and strategy is a top priority. APB leadership believes a truly consultative approach wins the day with almost any customer and that is what the customer truly needs…a trusted advisor. Over the past 23 years the size and type of yachts has evolved to be much larger and more complicated. APB evolved through continuous training, upgrading equipment, and recent expansions to effectively position the company to understand the needs of today’s yacht owners and vessel operators/ managers.
PRIVATE COMMERCIAL GOVERNMENT
APB has been primarily focused in the yachting industry and has recently begun to explore opportunities servicing the Commercial Industry as well as Government work. Recent staff additions have given us familiarity with the job bidding process that comes into play with commercial and government work, APB expects to make inroads into both the Commercial and Government Markets and has recently performed repair work for the USCG. Cruise Ships are abundant in South Florida and would be another area of interest for expansion of the current business model. Recent contracts for extensive waterjet work and plate rolling operations have continued to open doors to expand further into the commercial world. The recent completion of repairs to a small USCG vessel along with meetings with USCG vessel inspectors and the ability to provide them all certifications and processes required for government contracts has allowed us to be listed on their approved contractor list.
