(PALATKA, Fla.) — Americraft Marine Group has expanded investment in its Florida-based shipyard, St. Johns Ship Building, to increase capacity for construction of crew transfer vessels (CTVs) and other offshore wind-related boats.
In addition to previous commitments from Americraft to its subsidiary shipyard, St. Johns Ship Building has also received the final approval of a Maritime Administration (MarAd) grant modification. The investment along with the matching grant will provide for additional equipment and fabrication infrastructure specifically aimed at assisting in the expansion of the yard for the concurrent construction of multiple CTVs, supporting the U.S. offshore wind industry.
St. Johns Ship Building currently has multiple Jones Act-compliant CTVs under construction, with four scheduled deliveries in 2023.
