A 700-metric-ton Marine Travelift – one of the largest on the United States East Coast – has made its debut at Bridgeport Boatworks in Bridgeport, CT. This addition augments the 75 and 200 ton lifts already in operation. Bridgeport Boatworks specializes in servicing recreational yachts as well as commercial vessels of most shapes and sizes.
Bridgeport Boatworks is an integral part of the Steelpointe redevelopment initiative in Bridgeport Harbor. Following the success of Bass Pro Shops, Chipotle, Starbucks, and T-mobile while complimenting the new Bridgeport Harbor Marina, Boca waterfront restaurant, North Sales, and much more. Bridgeport Harbor is under a true renaissance and the Boatworks is proud to play its part in a remarkable revitalization of such an important Bridgeport asset.
It is anticipated the new business generated by the lift and existing business will create 30 to 50 additional permanent jobs for mechanics, welders, shipfitters, metal workers, painters, and general shipyard staff.
