MetalCraft Marine of Kingston, Ontario, will mark its 25th anniversary Friday with an open house at its shops on Wellington Street.

In addition to seeing a 70-foot fireboat being built for the Port of Houston at a value of $5 million, MetalCraft said visitors will see boats designed and built for the Panama Canal Authority canal expansion project, the Port of San Diego combined police and fire department and several others, including modern-day boats and vessels of historical importance.

The company said it also will have displays from major suppliers, including local partners and companies from across Canada and the United States.

There will be displays that show how aluminum boats are designed and built and information about MetalCraft’s new aluminum boatbuilding apprenticeship program, which the company said is a North American first.
