Bradford Grand Bahama, Ltd. (Bradford) and Larry Smith Electronics (Larry Smith) announce that they have signed a Memorandum of Agreement to form a new Joint Service Venture in the Bahamas.

Larry Smith is recognized internationally as a leading dealer, providing marine electronics, custom installations, custom vessel monitoring systems, audio visual equipment and integration. Larry Smith has custom designed and installed electronics systems for yachts around the world and is well-known for its quality sales and repair services. This venture enables Larry Smith to work out of the largest yacht repair facility in the Freeport area. The biggest gain of all is for the boat owner. The accessibility and reputation that Bradford provides for the smallest of pleasure vehicles to the ultra mega-yachts makes this venture very noteworthy. Paul Engle, Bradford’s President, said “We are very excited about this Joint Service Venture. 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.”
