U.S. Outfitters LLC has completed turnkey interior outfitting for its second Alaska Marine Highway day boat ferry, MV Hubbard, contracted with Vigor Alaska. USO was contracted to provide complete engineering, labor and materials for wall and ceiling systems, seating, food service court, all custom furniture, joiner doors and decking for the Hubbard and her sister ship Tazlina
USO is a leading marine interior outfitting company with extensive experience, expertise and core competence in all types of vessel outfitting. USO has an extensive project portfolio in many marine sectors, including cruise ship, riverboat, passenger ferry, military, MSC and commercial vessels (tankers, tug boats, OSVs and PSVs).  

“Our range of experience has given us the confidence to successfully deliver notable projects in recent years,” says USO’s Managing Director, Joshua Farid. "In 2017 we delivered the turnkey package for all cabins and public areas for American Dutchess, a river cruise boat operated by American Queen Steamboat Co. This was a major refurbishment project in which USO constructed a total of 124 cabins consisting of 83 all-suite passenger cabins with private verandas and 41 crew cabins, all public areas and three galleys. USO was also contracted to provide all balcony sliding doors and custom windows throughout the vessel. USO’s contract was second to that of Bolinger Shipyard.”

“Established Excellence, Expertise and Execution” is U.S. Outfitters' motto, and it’s a well suited slogan, as the company has a very long and well established project portfolio spanning over 28 years.
