Bradford’s business plan includes having quality sub-contractors align with us to provide a full line of the highest-quality services to the boat owner. Our venture with Larry Smith is a great addition to our shipyard and enables Larry Smith’s technicians to work along side the 90 tradesmen already employed by Bradford in Freeport. Bradford’s ability to offer all services in-house ensures quality, while keeping budget and completion time considerations in the forefront.”
