FLIBS 2019 Refit of the Year!

APB was contracted to fabricate, fit out, and install a new aluminum pilot house under the direction of Murray and assoc. and Burger Boat company. The clients vision was to change the styling of the vessel and create a private lounge / office on the fly-bridge.  APB and its team of welders, carpenters, composites experts, plumbers, and engineers facilitated the project at Lauderdale marine center.  It was a challenging endeavor to match the high end finishes of the existing interior and exterior of the vessel.  APB worked closely with American Bureau of Shipping  and Murray & Assoc. to insure all aspects of structural and aesthetics were performed to the highest level of quality.  This was a great project as it utilized all of our trades from the custom carbon mast, complex aluminum structures, to the extremely complicated joinery and plumbing systems. The project employed upwards of 40 people for a period of 8 months.  APB is one of the few Refit and repair companies that employs all of its own trades and can handle a large project of this nature.
