Barbour JB Shipyard, LLC (owned by JB Marine Services, Inc and Kaskaskia Shipyard) hired The Shearer Group, Inc. in the spring of 2014 to help bring back the “Barbour “ hull design JB Marine Service once built back in the early 90s. We wanted a marine architect/engineering firm we could partner with who was large enough to be recognized in our industry yet small enough to help us with all the details of our first boat to be built in over 20 years. After several interviews with multiple firms and much consideration we chose “The Shearer Group, Inc.” and are very happy we did. Their expertise, recommendations and attention to details gave us the added confidence needed in our new venture. Our new “Barbour” boat is well on its way to be completed on time thanks to our partners at “The Shearer Group, Inc.”
