All American Marine was among 10 Washington boatyards to receive funding for infrastructure improvements from the federal stimulus package.
According to U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., who made the announcement Tuesday, Aug. 18, the boat builder will get $297,827 through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.The company has been busy in recent months landing projects and in the coming weeks will be expanding to 45 employees. In April it was awarded a $5.3 million contract to build a high-speed, low-wake passenger ferry for Kitsap Transit. Mullett said the hull for that project is nearly completed, and they continue to work on hydrofoil technology design with Western Washington University.
