If you often take Washington State ferries around the Puget Sound, you may soon find yourself on one of the three currently being built by our client. In addition to building ferries, our client also builds and repairs fishing boats, tug boats, barges, fireboats, and high performance combat crafts. Located in Harbor Island, our clients are the experts when it comes to boats, and take value in producing quality vessels on time and on budget. Most importantly though, our client puts a large focus on safety – the safety of their employees, their products, and the consumers that use them.


If you’re familiar with what it’s like to work in the offices of a construction firm, you’ll find comfort in our client’s office environment. Casual, comfortable, and filled with workers who are gregarious on the outside, but very kind and passionate about the work they do. Comradery is a common theme among colleagues, so a willingness to be kind, warm, and respectful to others will go a long way here. Moreover, commitment to the company and respect for the code and values are found in every employee – including key principles like ‘be smart,’ ‘be careful,’ and ‘be considerate.’ Accountability and truthfulness are the keys to this organization’s success.
