Rear Admiral Bobby F. Hollingsworth,
Our turnaround time urSII Him tmii nti dence on out- side sources contributes to our excellent record for quick turn around and on-time delivery.
That's a major reason we do more cruise ship business than any other
U.S. yard. We can han- dle unexpected repairs
It lakes complete facilities.
No other yard in the Western
Hemisphere can match us. Wheth- er it's for rou- tine maintenance, emergency repairs, extensive machinery and hull repairs, jumboizing conversion or design and installation of inert gas systems, crude oil washing sys- tems, segregated ballast or other modifications to meet IMCO standards, we can handle it.
Because we can perform all repair services ourselves, we maintain com- plete control. This minimum depen- that turn up during planned mainte- nance and still deliver the ship in time for its scheduled cruises.
It takes people.
We have over 24.000 of the most highly skilled men and women in the industry, includ- ing 2000 engineers and designers.
It takes experience.
We have been building and repairing ships for nearly 100 years. With our know-how and our people, it's no surprise that we can provide the finest service at competitive rates.
The more complex the job, the more you need us.
