PBI Delivers Boom-Handling Boats; Offers Sturgeon Bay Yard For Sale

Peterson Builders, Inc. (PBI) recently delivered four 24-ft. 7.3-m), aluminum-hulled boom handling boats (BHBs) to the Naval Sea Systems Command of the U.S. Navy.

These pollution control craft represent a new market segment for PBI.

PBI is presently completing the constriction of the 42-ft. (12.8 m) aluminum PCC patrol craft and recently delivered 11 glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) LCPLs. Both of these projects were also contracted for by the Naval Sea Systems Command.

PBI has been actively engaged in the construction of patrol craft for the U.S. Navy and international customers for many years. PBI has designs for patrol craft ranging from 26 ft. (8 m) to 187 ft. (57 m) in length, having hulls constructed of aluminum, steel or GRP, with speeds in excess of 50 knots.

PBI recently announced that the shipyard in Sturgeon Bay, Wis., is being offered for sale, and that the owners are willing to consider joint ventures, partnerships and other business opportunities to utilize the facilities and workforce.

PBI will complete all work presently in process or under contract at the Sturgeon Bay facility.

PBI also announced that a shipbuilding backlog will not be pursued, but that other opportunities will be pursued and considered. PBI will maintain its other lines of business, including its ship repair facility in Ingleside, Texas, its procurement and logistics operation in Virginia Beach, Va., and Sturgeon Bay, as well as the Quarterdeck Marina in Sturgeon Bay. Its calibration facility in Sturgeon Bay will also be retained.
