Fort Lauderdale-based All Points Boats has recently completed a $3 million expansion of its Lauderdale Marine Center facilities in an effort to increase its marine repair and refit services, as well as to support other businesses through its engineering and manufacturing group, according to the company’s president and owner, Nate Goodwin.

“One focus of our redevelopment was to move our service shops together to improve the efficiency of jobs big and small,” Goodwin stated in a company press release. “Whether it’s industrial steel or fine interior woodwork, APB does it all in house.”

New machinery includes:

  • A 20-foot by 10-foot Flow Waterjet machine with a 60-degree multi axis cutting head capable of cutting up to 8-inch thickness of almost any material. It includes an ultra-high-pressure system for faster and more accurate cutting, so they can nest, cut, fabricate, then weld all materials in-house, reducing the material handling costs for clients.
  • A CNC 250-ton Accurpress brake press and CNC Accurpress shear to handle everything from sheet metal work to advanced bending and forming of all types of products.
  • A CNC Davi Plate roller for rolling duct work, hull plate, and reducing cones and shapes up to 96 inches in diameter. The machine can handle material up to 8 feet wide and half an inch thick.
  • An AXYZ CNC router to produce composites, plastics, and wood-related projects.
  • An updated machine shop with lathes and milling machines for any type of custom work.
  • Modernized composites and joinery shops with the addition of two down draft spray booths.

The company’s 30,000-square-foot workshop has a second-floor mezzanine for interior joinery and composites fabrication, and Goodwin says the company specializes in making molds and tooling for all types of custom applications.

Lloyds- and ABS-certified welders are experienced with a variety of metals – aluminum 6g unlimited, 316 stainless 6g, copper nickel, carbon steel, super alloys 254 SMO, AL6XN, Inconel, and titanium – and mobile response teams with fully functional, transportable shops can provide welding services within 24 hours anywhere in the southeastern U.S.

Other services include certified testing and repair of valves, and certified pressure testing of tanks and pipe work. Walk-in work is welcome, and pick-up and delivery services are available,
