International WorkBoat Show

Boothbay Harbor Shipyard representatives Capt. Dave Thompson and Dave Ernst, head for the International WorkBoat Show this week in New Orleans.

The International WorkBoat Show is the largest commercial marine tradeshow in North America serving people and businesses working on the coastal, inland and offshore waters. One thousand companies will display products and services for commercial vessels and the companies that build, service and operate them.

In the future, BBHS will be teaming with Cummins to install propulsion and auxiliary engines from 50 to 2000 horsepower (37 to 1492 kW). Boothbay Harbor Shipyard can install engines into such boats as: gill netters, ferries, yachts, tugboats, fishing boats, fire boats, seiners, and crew boats.

Installations such as the Cummins engines in the tugboat Lucinda Smith are an example of the teaming effort. See a video on the tugboat Lucinda Smith installation here.
