From inspiration to execution, engineers are the cornerstone of a well-integrated power distribution system on a modern yacht. The security of knowing you have safe, reliable power at your fingertips is the passion of our engineers


Better. Faster. Fewer components.  These are the goals that drive our innovation. Racks and rows of mechanical components are going the way of the vacuum tube, and our engineers are forging the path forward. Modern microprocessor controls improve the reliability and flexibility of our designs, helping drive the cost of custom designs to near-production levels. 

Auto CAD

The most elegant marine electrical system can be reduced to an incomprehensible jumble without a clear map to communicate how the system works. For decades, Autodesk, Inc.'s AutoCAD has been the world's standard for producing digital engineering drawings. Our engineering department uses the most up-to-date version of the AutoCAD Electrical variant, and produces drawings that help paint a clear picture of a cohesive, efficient, and well-integrated power distribution system.

Standards Compliance

Federal standards. International standards. Flag country standards. Insurance standards. Industry standards. Today's superyachts float on a sea of regulatory compliance, and our engineering department makes sure that the electrical system on your yacht meets or exceeds all of the relevant standards, chapter and verse. From Lloyd's Register and ABS to the Cayman Island Ship Registry to Bureau Veritas to 46 CFR and the ABYC, our engineers are there to smooth the regulatory seas.

Software Design

The integration of a CANBus  generator status data stream through a microprocessor-controlled, fully automated switchgear system and out for display on the yacht's Vessel Monitoring System display in the wheelhouse is just one of the tasks our software team performs every day.  We also design, program, and integrate advanced lighting control systems, design and develop hull stress monitoring systems, and diagnose subsystem failures in older PLC-controlled switchgear systems. The role of the software engineer in the world of yacht electrical systems has grown at the same pace as the rest of the digital revolution, and Ward's Marine Electric is at the leading edge of innovation.

Quality Control and Documentation

Throughout the development of an electrical power distribution system at Ward's Marine Electric, a full suite of documents are produced that chronicle the design, functionality, and integrity of the system.  Operational and maintenance manuals, in-process fabrication QC checks, test plans, component documentation, and a complete folio of engineering drawings are all part of the comprehensive documentation that comes with every Ward's Marine Electric power distribution system.

If the person signing this Work Order is other than the Owner, such person, individually, warrants to Ward’s Marine that such person has the Owner’s authority to sign this Work order. If Ward’s Marine has any doubt as to such person’s authority, Ward’s Marine may, without liability to Owner, not start any work under this Work Order or may stop such work until the vessel’s Owner gives his written approval and confirmation of this Work Order.


Owner warrants to Ward’s Marine that the owner owns the title to the vessel described in this Work Order free and clear of all liens and encumbrances, except as otherwise disclosed herein, and that all of the information pertaining to the registration of the boat on the front page of this Work Order is true and correct in all respects.


Unless a time for completion of the work is specified on the first page of this Work Order, the work shall be done within a reasonable time commensurate with the amount and difficulty of the work.


Unless the contrary is specified on the front page of this Work Order, all work shall be completed substantially in conformance with the electrical standards described in the Standards and Technical Information Reports for Small Craft, published by the American Boat and Yacht Council, Inc.

If Owner fails to pay the bill for the cost of the work within a thirty (30) day period, the amount of such bill shall draw interest at the rate of eighteen percent (18%) per annum commencing thirty (30) days after the date of the bill to the date of payment.


To secure the payment of the cost of the work rendered under this Work Order and any interest and attorney fees that may be paid as provided herein, Owner grants to Ward’s Marine (i) maritime lien under the Federal Maritime Lien Act, and (ii) a mechanics lien under the laws of the state of Florida. In addition, Owner acknowledges that the terms of this Work Order constitute a security agreement under the Florida Commercial Code granting Ward’s Marine a lien and security interest in Owner’s boat to secure payment due hereunder, and Owner agrees that, as a condition of doing the work hereunder or continuing such work, Owner shall sign a financing statement as required by Florida law granting Ward’s Marine a security interest in Owner’s boat. The above three remedies to secure the payments due under this Work Order are mutually exclusive. The exercise of any one remedy by Ward’s Marine does not prevent a subsequent exercise of any one or more of the other remedies granted to Ward’s Marine under this paragraph.

Attorney Fees

If the cost of the work together with any interest thereon is not paid when due and Ward’s Marine obtains an attorney to collect same, then the boat Owner shall pay Ward’s Marine reasonable attorney fees including attorney fees at the trial level and on appeal together with all court cost incurred thereby.
