At DLBA doing quality work that meets the highest standards of performance is our greatest reward. That being said, we have been pleased to see that some of our designs, collaborative efforts, and personnel have received industry recognition since our founding back in 1988: over 10 vessels nominated or recognized for size, speed, endurance, technological innovation, and design, a founder with over 50 years of work in naval architecture and marine engineering and the accolades to prove it, and receiving multi-year recognitions in Marine News magazine’s Top 100 companies serving the North American shallow draft market to name a few. Stay tuned to see what comes off our drawing boards next that could be award-worthy.

Here you can find the articles about DLBA company and employee awards.
