Deltaville Boatyard is proud to announce that Starr Pullman, Production Manager,
completed the American Boatbuilders and Repairers Association (ABBRA) Marine Service Manager course in March 2019. Leadership and management from yards all over the United States attended the four-day training course, which included topics such as: leadership skills, time management, human resources and team building, safety and health to OSHA requirements, financial management, project management, maritime law, and marketing. The final day includes a hands-on boatyard study tour two of the top boatyards on the East Coast, including Newport Ship Yard and Hinkley Yachts. Attendees performed a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis of the facilities to apply the previous days’ studies. For Pullman’s participation in the program, she was awarded a certificate of completion, which now enables her to apply for the title of “Certified Marine Service Manager”.
