Eastern Boats, a 30 year old New England boat building company implemented PierVantage for Boat Builders this week. Eastern Boats is known for building high-quality, rugged, and fuel-efficient Downeast-style boats.
Eastern Boats joins other highly respected boat builders such as Derecktor Shipyards, GUNBOAT, US Watercraft , Lyman Morse Boat Building Company, Front Street Shipyard, and Philbrook’s Boat Yard in their choice to use PierVantage for Boat Builders, the only industry specific boat building platform on the market.
"We have grown quickly over the past few years," said Bob Bourdeau, owner of Eastern Boats. "In order to keep up with our growth, we felt the need to fine tune our operations by purchasing a boat building platform. We looked around and interviewed a number of companies and quickly realized PierVantage for Boat Builders was the only solution on the market specifically designed for our business. With PierVantage, we can effectively track lay-up, assembly, glass, gel coat, rigging, and cleaning by model. Inventory management and reporting are also key capabilities we are looking to leverage fully," said Bourdeau.
“We are seeing strong growth in the semi-production boat building segment and are excited Bob and his team at Eastern Boats put their confidence in us,” said Navroze Eduljee, founder and CEO of CorVant, creators of PierVantage.
