St Helen’s enjoys boat boom

Lyndcraft Boats at St Helen’s is enjoying a boom, building work boats for the aquaculture industry. Managing Director, Greg Lynd, hosted a media event in July to launch the latest of 19 vessels he has built for fish farmers: Myti Max; Rocket; and Irony. The three boats, including two for Spring Bay Seafoods, earned the north-east business about $2 million. An additional six vessels will be built for Tassal by the end of the year. The Minister for Infrastructure, Rene Hidding, said: “A sustainable aquaculture industry is vital for Tasmanian jobs and the economy in our regional areas. Lyndcraft Boats is reaping the benefits, with a recent expansion of its St Helens facility and workforce to deal with additional demand. It’s a great demonstration of how the growth of the aquaculture industry has guaranteed employment for thousands of Tasmanians right across the State.”
