Boatbuilder boosted by government ordersPosted on
While other recreational boatbuilders are scaling back operations, Fort Lauderdale-based Midnight Express Powerboats has maintained full production throughout the year with contracts to build customized pursuit and interdiction vessels for security and training purposes, the company says.
A U.S. Navy contract concluded this spring calls for Midnight Express to provide the Navy with 14 of the company’s 39-foot Interceptors, boats that are already in service with U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
In addition to supplying these fast and versatile boats to the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the company is negotiating with a number of government agencies in other nations that are seeking ways to protect the sea lanes that border their shores.
