A Geraldton-based company that has secured a bid to build a new police boat for Tasmania has described the contract as a win for the mid-west WA region.
Fine Entry Marine has been commissioned to build the $8 million, 24-metre vessel.
The Government opened the tender process in September for a new boat to replace its trouble-plagued PV Fortescue.
Fine Entry’s Tim Brown said the contract came at a time when many regional businesses were struggling to find work.
“It is huge for the region, it’s even bigger for us really to secure such a contract,” he said.
“It’s great to get something from over east, from interstate, back in our region where it should be.”
