Just as megayachts have grown in size and complexity, so, too, have the passerelles, tender-launching systems, and other products designed, engineered, and offered by Nautical Structures. The company has come a long way since its start in the mid- to late 1980s, as you’ll learn in this podcast. Rick Thomas, vice president of sales, talks about some of the biggest challenges that Nautical Structures has faced. But he also relates how the company has gotten involved in a seemingly unrelated field: medical equipment that aids wounded servicemen and women. I say “seemingly” because, as Thomas explains, there are actually some interesting parallels.
