Moriarty also will simplify the installation design process by allowing Imtra to accept Computer Aided Design boat plans from customers and develop a complete lighting layout, featuring high-output LEDs and other lighting solutions from Imtra’s product line.

Moriarty is a lifelong boater and a graduate of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in marine electrical and mechanical engineering.
