Government Services
government services It is hard to find a boat repair company who effectively executes private, commercial and government contracts. Each segment requires a fundamentally different approach to project management, work procedures, quality assurance and documentation.

At Marine Group Boat Works, we combine our rich heritage in commercial ship repair with a focused approach to meet the unique needs of government customers.

Our Government Division provides high-quality boat repair and conversion services to the San Diego Harbor Police, Port of San Diego, U.S. Navy, Military Sealift Command, U.S. Coast Guard, Maritime Administration and other government agencies.

Our approach is focused, proven and highly successful. Over the past eight years, we have built an impressive track record in both minor and major government repair projects by delivering government vessels on time, staying within budget and subscribing to the highest standards of quality.

We draw from our extensive experience in government boat repair to assemble the right team for each job. Our project managers, estimators, quality assurance and logistics personnel understand the complex requirements of government contract management. They are supported by computerized scheduling, documentation and reporting systems. Our quality assurance system is based on our extensive knowledge of ABS, USCG and Lloyds classification societies. Our safety and environmental programs insure all projects conform to the most stringent government regulations.

Environmental Stewardship

Marine Group Boat Works embraces the importance of preserving our environment; and our commitment for taking initiative allows us to stay on the forefront of conservation for both our community and industry.

• Our 15-acre facility was renovated to include a curbed storm drain system where 100% runoff is captured in 60,000-gallon storage tanks. After tested clear for hazardous materials, the water is discharged to the city for proper disposal.

• We enforce a company-wide recycling program recycling metals, plastics, cardboard and paper.

• The Port recommends that any maintenance including 25 percent or more of a vessel should be done at a boatyard to keep the Bay clean. Our custom-designed 665-ton Travelift is allows us to raise the boats completely out of and away from the water, so products used in the maintenance and repair of the vessels do not contaminate the Bay.

• For sanding and grinding work, Marine Group Boat Works contains and shrink-wraps all vessels to prevent paint and debris from entering the air or water.

• In June of 2010, Marine Group Boat Works completed the design and construction on the first of three Navy RTSC vessels that is considered to be one of the most environmentally friendly U.S. military vessels thus far, capable of running completely on 100% bio-fuel with cold ironing capabilities.

In addition to the environmentally friendly work done on-site at Marine Group Boat Works, the company is also active off-site.

• Marine Group Boat Works has donated over $30,000 worth of in-kind products and services to the Chula Vista Nature Center, a community landmark dedicated to providing environmental education on coastal resource conservation and instilling a respect for nature and wildlife in people of all ages. The donation covers the cost of food to feed all the animals at the Nature Center in addition to pro-bono work including installing new signage at the front entrance, providing skilled tradesmen for special projects and volunteering for various programs and clean-ups. Our President Herb Engel, sits on the Nature Center's board of directors and Leah Yam, director of communications, serves on the marketing committee.

• Marine Group Boat Works participates in other community programs such as the San Diego Port Tenant's Operation Clean Sweep, San Diego Coastkeeper's bay clean-ups and the Port of San Diego's copper-free bottom paint program initiative.
