Knight & Carver honored as boatyard of the year

Knight & Carver YachtCenter, which has emerged in recent years as one of the marine industry’s top-rated repair yards for megayachts and other large vessels, has been honored by the American Boat Builders & Repairers Association (ABBRA) as the nation’s most outstanding boatyard for 2007.

The organization’s annual “Boatyard of the Year” award is made annually to the U.S. vessel repair company that, according to the citation, “demonstrates excellence in all facets of business through commitment to customer relations, quality management, positive employee and vendor relationships, regard for the safety of their employees and their customers, is a good steward of the environment, and innovatively employs technology to enhance their marine business.”

Accepting the prestigious marine-industry award on behalf of Knight & Carver at the recent ABBRA awards ceremony in Atlanta were repair yard manager Mike Alvarez and production manager Giovanni LoCoco.

“This award marks a significant achievement in our company’s long and accomplished history,” said President/CEO Sampson A. Brown. “We couldn’t be more proud of our entire team, led by our skilled and highly experienced marine craftsmen. It’s their painstaking, hands-on devotion to excellence, along with our company-wide commitment to completing projects on-time and on-budget, that has become Knight & Carver’s signature within the industry.”

Next up for Knight & Carver is Arctic P (photo), a 288-ft. converted icebreaker that ranks high among the world’s 100 largest megayachts. The vessel is scheduled to spend several months at Knight & Carver, starting in early February. Last year, Knight & Carver completed an extensive refit on Reverie, a 230-ft Benetti megayacht.
