Baltic Workboats US at the American Pilots Association Convention in Savannah, GA

Baltic Workboats US attended the 2018 APA convention in Savannah, GA with their 1st vessel delivered to the US, “Pilot No 7”. This event was the perfect opportunity for the company to showcase their innovative wave piercing technology to the Pilots in the US.

As a main event sponsor, Baltic Workboats was able to address the APA members on the many health benefits afforded by our vessels. Our industry-leading pilot boats feature ultra-low noise and vibration levels which help to reduce occupant fatigue and eliminate the long-term health risks attributed to exposure to noise and vibration.

 

We had a great time at the convention and want to thank all those who spent time with us throughout the week.
