Bremerton, WA –SAFE Boats International is proud to announce record bookings in Q3 that total over $105 million (USD). In September SAFE Boats was awarded a Foreign Military Sales contract to provide up to eight Mk VI Patrol Boats for the Ukrainian Navy. This program, along with strong orders from commercial and public safety customers, has led to a steady and profitable 2021 for SAFE.
“Our success in 2021 is a direct result of the quality, customer service and performance we deliver to our customers” said Richard Schwarz, CEO of SAFE Boats. “We are very fortunate to have a strong and engaged work force that make our products what they are today. With the award of the Mk VI Patrol Boat contract the Company expects to create over 75 new positions in our Tacoma, WA facility.”
The domestic offshore wind sector continues to be an emerging market for SAFE Boats. In August the Company signed a new partnership agreement with Diverse Marine, who bring proven crew transfer vessel (CTV) designs and experience from the European markets. Through this partnership, SAFE Boats and Diverse will continue their collaboration in pursuit of promising offshore wind vessel opportunities.
