Bradford turns 50 with new logo

Ft. Lauderdale-based Bradford Marine celebrates 50 years repairing boats in South Florida and the Bahamas this year, launching a new logo that does away with its signature green stripes.

It is perhaps best known for its long-time employees and consistent level of work. More than 50 percent of its current workforce has been with the company a decade or longer, and some as long as 30 years.

“Our reputation for service, craftsmanship, and standing behind our work with a highly-skilled, experienced workforce is the reason we continue to succeed as a company,” company president and former yacht captain Paul Engle said.

And as the industry grew up around it, tucked way up the New River, it has serviced many of the classic names in yachting.

“Everybody’s connected to the company in some way,” Engle said. “It belongs to everybody.”

Bradford Marine Bahamas began operation of its Freeport shipyard in 1997 on a 47-acre site with a 150-ton Travelift. In 2000, the company added a 1,200-ton floating drydock built to ABS specifications.

In 2010, the company started a concrete dock division in which it designs, engineers and manufactures concrete floating docks. Bradford employees also design and manufacture custom fabric structures and containment booms.
