Americraft Marine is a U.S. maritime subsidiary of Libra Group formed in response to the critical need for Jones Act-compliant vessels, including those that advance U.S. energy independence by servicing offshore wind installations.
Based in Palatka, Florida, St. Johns Ship Building is Americraft’s Jones Act-compliant facility with the capabilities for new construction and repair of a wide range of steel and aluminum vessels. It is also one of the few U.S. shipyards that builds vessels that support and service offshore wind farms. With facilities including a storm-protected 100-acre inland campus with an 850-ton floating drydock, St. Johns Ship Building is positioned to accelerate the production of Jones Act-compliant vessels, a critical need for the U.S. supply chain and economic competitiveness.
Starting with St. Johns, Americraft Marine is working to build and advance a best-in-class Jones Act-compliant shipyard, investing in stable industrial jobs, workforce training, and leveraging the historical maritime heritage of Libra Group to advance the U.S. marine sector.
