Maintenance and Repair
Maintenance and Repair Department
Anchor Innovation, Inc. (Anchor) was founded on the principle that U.S. Navy assets and boats going in harm’s way MUST be maintained to the highest standard of material and operational readiness possible.
Anchor is extremely proud of the level of service we have provided Special Boat Team TWELVE (SBT-12) over the past five years providing overhaul and upgrades to assigned 11-meter Special Warfare RIBs. Both NSWG-4 (sponsor for all SpecWar craft) and SBT-12 leadership have described Anchor’s support contract as: ‘Our most successful maintenance contract’.
Equally as strong is our commitment to maintaining the 27 Harbor Security Boats and Anti-Small Craft Barrier Handling Boats assigned to Navy Region Southwest (NRSW). Additionally, we provide maintenance support to the 60+ Oil Spill Response and Workboats assigned to NRSW, as well as small boats assigned to Military Sealift Command.
Anchor mechanics are certified in the following marine engine platforms:
Bombardier (Evinrude / Johnson)
We have factory trained support personnel that provide Cummins Diesel support, as well as Kohler and Westerbeke Marine Generator maintenance and repairs.
When the U.S. Navy answered the call to provide oil spill response support to the Deepwater Horizon oil-spill, Anchor assumed the maintenance and repair duties for over 60 boats assigned from Navy Regions throughout the Continental U.S.. These vessels were strategically placed from Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base New Orleans to Naval Air Station Pensacola. Operating in small inlets and passes, the logistical and repair requirements presented significant challenges, but Anchor excelled, sending nearly all boats home in better material condition than in which they arrived.
Anchor’s Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) status and General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule 84 Law Enforcement contract (GS-07F-5694R) aid in streamlining the contracting process for services. Our facility-secured “SECRET” status provides us the opportunity to work on some of the most sophisticated boats in the U.S. Navy inventory and provide innovative solutions in maritime security. In writing the Navy’s Harbor Patrol Unit Standard Operating Procedures, we visited every major Navy port worldwide enhancing our Navy’s force protection capabilities while identifying challenges. We know what our vessels must do and to what level they must be ready to operate!
