Bradford Marine, a shipyard and brokerage firm in Fort Lauderdale and the Bahamas, is the first brokerage to offer My-Villages mobile technology as an innovation partner.

Bradford Marine will use The Boat Village to coordinate service and maintain vessels, making the premium service available to all of its customers. The firm is already using My-Villages’ DockMaster marine software.

“Bradford Marine has been an industry leader for decades and we are thrilled they chose The Boat Village for their customers,” My-Villages founder and CEO Kevin Hutchinson said in a statement. “From advanced lift and dry-dock equipment to the way they have expanded their business, this company is forward-looking, and their interest in The Boat Village takes their desire to innovate customer service and engagement one more step.”

“This product allows boat owners and captains to use the latest technology to maintain and care for their boats,” Bradford Marine president Paul Engle said.

Bradford Marine joins a growing list of marine firms that have signed on as Boat Village Innovation Partners, including The Hinckley Co. and Regal, as well as service yards such as Whiticar Boat Works, Saunders, Maine Yacht Center, Front Street Shipyard and Marine Professionals Inc.
