Building Safety in Steel
Allseas Yachts was founded by Benny Alls, an old timer in steel boat manufacturing. Benny began his career in boat building in 1975 and began building steel commercial fishing boats from 48 feet to 100 feet in length. He trained his son, Tim Alls, to weld and the two of them were soon building some of the most rugged steel commercial boats on the market. Their clients needed boats that could endure the extreme weather of Alaska and the Bering sea. The hulls needed to be tough enough to handle occasional rocks as well as large logs in the water. Stability was a huge factor so that these boats could fish in rough weather which was so common in Southeast Alaska. Benny and Tim had to learn by experience the thickness of glass and window spacing's required to survive 75 foot waves that fishermen sometimes come upon unexpectedly. With Benny’s experience in building tough steel hulls and Tim’s experience in the hi-tech industry an unusual balance was achieved between old school thinking and new school technology.
