Proven Performance in Ocean Service

We've been building oceangoing barges in our southern Indiana shipyard for nearly 50 years. In addition to Boston Fuel's 40,000-barrel oceangoing tanker barge pictured above, we've designed and built vesselsfor hauling bulk commodities, chem- icals and oil along both the East and West

Coasts, the Gulf Coast, and the coastal waters of Alaska.

Manufacturing Versatility

Our manufacturing versatility enables us to build a wide range of standard and cus- tom-designed vessels. Like towboats, off- shore drilling rig components, passenger/ vehicle ferries and a variety of barges, including one that holds up to 100 rail cars of coal.

Prompt Delivery

Boston Fuel was greatly impressed by our record for prompt delivery. But so are all our customers. That's because we build, launch and deliver vessels according to a strict schedule. . . a schedule which has allowed us to triple our production in the past eight years.

Reputation for Quality

Boston Fuel was also impressed by our nearly half-century reputation for qual- ity. . . a reputation we've maintained by focusing our efforts on offering customers a winning combination of vessel variety and outstanding on-the-job performance.
