Boat Builder

Boat builders make and repair sailing, fishing, pleasure and motorboats. They may also design vessels or assist naval architects with the design of vessels. The responsibilities of a boat builder vary greatly depending on the type of vessel that is being built. For example, construction of an aluminium fishing boat is very different than building a super yacht! There are all sorts of trades involved in building a boat. Some boat builders may focus on installing electrical components and plumbing, others are interested in engineering duties, others still specialise in the carpentry components found on boats. Unless a boat builder is self-employed, they are likely to work in a factory that manufactures vessel en masse.
