Production manager Randy Stoneman is a master boatbuilder with 29 years of experience in the marine industry, the last 20 of which include the production of megayachts in the Pacific Northwest. Stoneman is also the founder of RivTech Drift Boats, manufacturing handcrafted fishing boats.

As Northern Marine's chief naval architect, Mark Allred manages the company's design and engineering departments. Allred has six years of experience in the marine industry, most recently at Marquis Yachts in Wisconsin. He is a graduate of the University of New Orleans.

Northern Marine's in-house design and engineering team creates fully customized craft tailored to meet the owner's needs. It also offers full refit and repair services.
