Company History

Founded in 2005, Tampa Yacht Manufacturing (TYM) was established to meet the rapidly evolving needs of the High-Speed, Anti-Terrorism, Interdiction Craft market. Managed by executives and personnel with over 20 years of boat manufacturing experience, TYM has developed Engineering, Quality Assurance and Production programs and capabilities that ensure a high-quality product.

TYM operates in a modern 80,000 square-foot, climate-controlled, advanced-composites facility. We build to any and all IACS High Speed Planing Hull Rules and Regulations, and specifically to RINA High Speed Military Certification. ISO 9001 QA System forms the basis of our integrated Quality Management System standards. Our highly experienced staff of engineers and naval architects use the latest Computer Aided Design (CAD) programs. These include 3D and solid modeling, advanced planing hull surface development, hydrodynamic and hydrostatic modeling, CNC computer lofting, and 3D systems integration.

To produce moderate-weight and extremely robust military grade vessels, TYM uses the latest advanced-composite manufacturing processes. These include lamination using vinylester, polyester and epoxy resins; E-glass, S-glass, carbon fiber and Kevlar aramid reinforcements; and vacuum bag resin infusion and pre-preg technologies.

Tampa Yacht Manufacturing is well versed in foreign military sales as well as U.S. Government programs. Recently TYM entered into a contract with a foreign government to supply a large number of 44-foot FCI (Fast Coastal Interceptors). This contract and many others over the years have provided TYM with considerable expertise in integrating complex electronics, weapons and ballistic systems into our boat designs.

In order to spotlight our military line of craft, Tampa Yacht Manufacturing created two new company identities: Tampa Defense USA (TD USA) and Tampa Defence UK (TD UK). Working with our partners worldwide, the TYM family has the sales, marketing and logistical support capabilities to respond to our customers’ needs.

You can rely on TYM to provide you with fleets made up of the latest and most technically advanced and capable boats available.
