ABBRA – American Boat Builders & Repairers Association


Boatyard Resource Guide

The American Boat Builders & Repairers Association (ABBRA) has released the much-anticipated third edition of its popular publication: the Boatyard And Marina Operators Manual, now renamed the Boatyard Resource Guide to more adequately reflect the document. The Guide, previously updated in 1996, contains 140 full-color pages of ideas, best practices, and resources on a variety of subjects relevant to the skillful operation of a marine service and repair facility.

The articles in the Boatyard Resource Guide offer general, thought-provoking material to enhance programs in individual yards. Topics of the Guide range from preparing a strategic plan, to severe storm and hurricane preparation, to an overview of environmental law. All articles are crafted in a way that allows the reader to tailor the material to fit the specific needs of their facility.

The Boatyard Resource Guide is now free for all ABBRA members and $175.00 for non-members. Those interested in purchasing the Guide, which will be delivered via electronic PDF, should scan and email a publication order form to info@abbra.org, fax to 954-239-2600, or mail to ABBRA, 1075 SE 17th Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316.
