YRM expands to WPB

“We’ve been steadily growing,” said Stuart Pudsey, YRM’s founder, president and CEO. “We’ve been doing a lot more work in that area.”


The company began as a one-man yacht repair and maintenance business in Ft. Lauderdale and has expanded to a workforce of 20. They moved into the company’s main 10,000-square-foot facility in 2012 and hired General Manager Chris Tomaszewski, who brought expertise in metal fabrication. Pudsey’s background is in maintenance, repair and carpentry.


“Pretty much everything we do is custom because just about everything we are asked to do is one-off, whether it be metal or wood,” Pudsey said. “We’re not a production line.”


YRM builds aluminum and stainless steel radar arches, handrails, hoop rails, brackets and supports. The carpentry division mills, fabricates, repairs and lays teak decks, wood soles, cabinetry, headliners, and interior redesigns. It recently received a U.S. patent for a chock design for tenders 9-25 feet. The metal shop can also build and install chocks for motorcycles, paddle boards, kayaks and Seabobs.
