Three new apprentices comes aboard Team Steber

Three apprentice shipwrights joined the team at Steber International this week as the boat builder
continues to ramp up staffing levels to keep pace with a hectic production schedule.
In the past two years Steber have employed a total of eight apprentices, as well as six skilled staff
to keep pace with government, commercial and recreational boat builds.
General Manager, Alan Steber said: “It’s pleasing that we are in a position to boost our workforce
and in particular offer the youth of the Manning an exciting career opportunity”.
“We have recently doubled the size of our engineering department and completed a tech upgrade to
maximise efficiencies in our production cycle.
“Currently we have 13 vessels either on order or in production and all are being constructed to the
new Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s survey code”, Mr Steber said.
Projects include: five Australian Navy support vessels, Marine Rescue vessels for Victoria, Hayman
Island character boat, commercial fishing vessel and fisheries research vessel for the government of
Mauritius, which at 61ft, will be the largest yet constructed by Steber.
