EXPORT

EXPORT GOODS & SERVICES

BtB Marine has been exporting - with a focus on the Asia Pacific Region - for over 10 years.
The vessels can be surveyed for professional use, if required by local authorities. All boats are fitted out to meet the client's specifications. For certain remote operations, basic manual(s) are supplied and training provided.
Boat and Trailer Kits (Flat Packs)

All models are also available as Kits. These Kits come with an instruction manual and welding schedule. In the schedule, there is an option for surveyors to sign off at different stages of construction, if this is required. The Kits are packed on a pallet ready for shipment and all parts are numbered and conform with the instruction manual.

Raw Hulls

A very cost-efficient way of purchasing a boat can be as a raw hull - ready to be fitted out by the client. All fit-out components can be purchased through BtB Marine for very compatible rates as an incentive for purchasing the hull. Boats can be built to different stages, depending on client's requirements, or in order to fit the boat more efficiently in a shipping container. 

Fuel System

As it is not possible to get good quality fuel everywhere, BtB Marine has designed their fuel system, in such a way that it is easy to access the tank and drain any excessive water that might be in the (local) fuel.

Motor Mounting

As some of our boats operate in a remote area, a twin motor set-up is available for most models. If required our boats can be fitted out with an extra motor-bracket that will support an auxiliary outboard to help optimize the safety of the people on board on longer trips.

On site construction

If required, our tradesmen can be sent on-site anywhere in the world to assist local tradesmen or work 'stand-alone' with our own tools and materials. BtB Marine can send a complete 'workshop' inside a 20ft container and can also help set up a local workshop and train local workers to assemble the boats themselves. Clients can also purchase all needed fit-out equipment through BtB Marine.

Training

BtB Marine offers training to (local) boat operators. In most countries there is no licence required for boats under 6m. BtB Marine recommends all people comply with their local boating regulations and to be familiar with safe boating practices, along with reviewing the manual(s) applicable for their boat and safety gear operation. If help is required, we can provide customised training specifically for the area of operation.

Programming

BtB Marine can program the electronic (navigation) devises to be ready for use in the area of operation. Not only by adding (local) charts into the GPS, but also programming routes if required.
