Mission Proven Boats
When our customers were asked what defines and differentiates Willard Marine, they most commonly used words like “Partner,” “Respectful,” “Strong” and “Proven.” We are proud of these attributes and have been committed to the highest level of customer service and quality since our founding in 1957.
Willard Marine has built numerous types of vessels for the most discerning customers in the world including the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, Homeland Security, NOAA, foreign militaries and major-market law enforcement agencies. We understand that maritime professionals depend on Willard boats to be exceptionally rugged, safe and maneuverable in the most challenging conditions, so no boat leaves our facility without every component and capability being rigorously tested at sea.
How We Operate
Privately held, Willard Marine is headquartered in Anaheim, California, and has an additional facility in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Our boats are built to the required USCG and ABYC standards, and our team of recognized professionals in the fields of Marine Engineering, Manufacturing, Materials, Quality Assurance and Testing are skilled at developing highly specialized boats that exceed regulatory standards and our customers’ expectations.
Being 9001:2008 certified, Willard maintains a Quality Assurance and Control program that requires strict marine engineering, production and testing standards. Our unwavering commitment to innovative materials and processes, like fiberglass vacuum infusion, eliminate product and production variations typically found in multi-vessel production. And long-term, consistent leadership on our Manufacturing team where the average company tenure is 22.5 years ensures that all Willard boats are built with the ultimate in craftsmanship and proven durability.
