MIAMI, Fla. — Improvements have been made at the Jones Boat Yard for clientele with large boats and to enhance the experience of all yachtsmen needing work on their boats, the company reported in a statement Thursday.
Owners Victor and Jose Bared said they remain true to their original vision for the Miami operation of Jones Boat Yard, as a yard intended to provide the best possible service experience available regardless of the size or scope of the project.
“As is the case with our larger yacht customers, the owner of a 40-foot sportfisherman demands exactly the same type of care for his vessel,” the president of the boat yard, Victor Bared, said. “To service his needs, we have recently overhauled our mechanical and electrical capabilities, have added a full carpentry department, and are currently outfitting a complete ship’s store.”
Jones said it is also negotiating with local businesses to create a network of services to enhance their client’s Miami experience. These enhancements are intended to complement the yard’s full time staff, which represents all the marine trades from carpentry and paint, welding and faring, mechanical and electrical, fiberglass and more. Jones Boat Yard currently employs 57 full time employees and said it rarely needs to outsource work.
Located on the Miami River, Jones Boat Yard, which is owned and operated by Jonesport, Miami, has hauling and dry dock capabilities to 300-foot LOA, 48-foot beam and 1800 tons.
