YRM opens crane, davits shop


Fort Lauderdale-based YRM opened a 5,000-square-foot facility to house its expanding crane and davits division. The new shop will fabricate YRM’s Ocean Series of aluminum davits with lift capacities of 1,000, 1,200 and 1,500 pounds.

“We are expanding this year with our own line of davits,” said Stuart Pudsey, founder, president and CEO of YRM.

Currently the company operates a 10,000-square-foot complex for custom carpentry, dockside service and maintenance division.

The new facility also will manufacture the Lake Series of davits for 600 and 800 pound loads and YRM’s patent-pending twin davits for small cruising boats that lift 800 pounds in tandem. The Ocean Series is for yachts 50 to 70 feet and the Lake Series for 30 to 50 foot boats.

YRM also designs and fabricates stainless steel railings, anchor rollers, radar arches, brackets, rub rails and other stainless and aluminum hardware. Its carpentry division does custom carpentry, cabinetry, teak decks, plexiglass, starboard and headliner work.

Its service division performs the full range of yacht maintenance and dockside services.

“The fabrication work we do is a mix between refits and new builds,” says Tomaszewski.

YRM employs 28 and is hiring for its fabrication operations. YRM also maintains a 1,500-square-foot office in West Palm Beach as a base for staff who do contract work

on yachts at the marinas and megayacht yards in the Palm Beach area.
