Rhode Island-based designer and boatbuilder US Watercraft LLC chose PierVantage for Boat Builders to help manage the company’s brands, including Alerion Yachts, C&C Yachts, True North Yachts and Waterline Systems.

US Watercraft joins boatbuilders that include Gunboat, Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding Co., Front Street Shipyard, Schooner Creek Boat Works and Derecktor Shipyards in their choice to use PierVantage to help with business management issues such as tracking costs and its just-in-time inventory purchasing process.

“There is strong demand right now for both our sail and power boat lines,” US Watercraft president Randy Borges said in a statement. “As our company continues to grow at a rapid pace, it is important for us to invest in a more modern technology platform built specifically for building and servicing boats. PierVantage for Boat Builders is the only modern technology solution on the market, so the choice was easy for us,” Borges said.
