It’s full speed ahead for SAFE Boats in the law-and-order market

There was a rare pause on the production floor at SAFE Boats International in Bremerton last week as more than 300 employees, government officials and officers of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency celebrated the handoff of an aluminum patrol boat that can travel at more than 60 mph to interdict smugglers or other intruders along the nation’s coastline.
Speeches and tours might not be expected for the 2,000th boat build by SAFE, a growing boat builder that’s one of Kitsap County’s largest private employers.
With stable footing in Bremerton, SAFE Boats is continuing to pursue opportunities for growth.
It is working with the Port of Bremerton to figure out how to expand its footprint there, and hire 30 to 40 new employees by the end of the year.
