The shortest distance between two points... is coming off the ways at Avondale.
The internationally recognized expertise of
Avondale Industries, Inc. in the fabrication of com- mercial and combatant ships is being applied today to smaller craft. The Avondale Boat Division, capitaliz- ing on the company's superior engineering and assembly technology, is capturing contracts to build state-of-the-art boats for demanding customers. Such as the high-speed, surface effect passenger ferries ordered recently by Tri-State Marine Transport, Inc.
These remarkable boats will travel 50 knots-plus and get 400 busy executives from Kennedy to Wall
Street or vice versa in minutes-most definitely the fastest route between these two points.
Avondale was chosen for this job because of our reputation for quality control, ability to meet tight deadlines and competitive pricing.
We can guarantee the shortest distance between design and delivery for you, too.
