Today, we launched's new website. The new design had been under development for several months, and it now has a more streamlined look and feel. We encourage you visit the new site and check out all it has to offer.

In addition to the industry news and blogs (Viewpoints) we have always provided, the new site features video interviews, webinar highlights and much more. We also plan to soon launch Workboat + Wind, a new quarterly digital publication dedicated to the growing U.S. offshore wind market.

So keep reading WorkBoat in print and online through our new website to stay up to date on all the workboat industry sectors we cover — shipbuilding, tugs, inland and coastal waterways, offshore oil and gas, offshore wind energy, passenger vessels, the military market, and government agencies such as the Coast Guard, Army Corps of Engineers, NOAA and others.
