Cape Charles Yacht Center, a new destination for yacht services in Virginia, recently implemented PierVantage for Boatyards.

“PierVantage has helped us streamline our boatyard operations,” Cape Charles Yacht Center CFO Dan Brown said in a statement.

“Their team is extremely knowledgeable and made the platform transition very easy. While we are a relatively small boatyard, we have already felt the immediate effects of using an industry-specific professional ERP product. I would recommend PierVantage to marine service businesses of any size as a top-notch business software solution.”

Cape Charles Yacht Center is just inside the mouth of Chesapeake Bay, and although its primary purpose is to provide full service for superyachts, the shipyard will be able to accommodate vessels of all sizes.

It features 1,000 feet of face dockage, and an additional 1,000 feet is in progress; it has a 75-ton boat lift, and an up to 300-ton boat lift is in the design phase, and it has an 18-foot-deep channel, which accommodates large luxury yachts.

Cape Charles Yacht Center joins other boatyards such as Chicago Yacht Works, Zimmerman Marine, Pacific Fishermen Shipyard & Electric and Front Street Shipyard in their decision to use PierVantage to help with business tasks such as tracking true job costs, progress billing and managing their inventory purchasing process.

“We are very happy to have Cape Charles Yacht Center as one of our newest customers on the East Coast,” said Greg Miller, director of sales and marketing at CorVant, creators of PierVantage.

“Dan and the team were looking for an industry-specific platform that would handle most, if not all of their needs. PierVantage fit their business requirements and we moved forward with the on-boarding process as quickly as possible.”
