Since the Postma commission, the bulk of the yard's work is in multihull design and construction in sail and, increasingly, power; in 20 years, the company has built more than 45 boats. Commissions come from the military, for patrol and rescue vessels; from commercial enterprises, such as tour and ferry companies; and from individuals seeking custom and one-off boats, such as a current commission to build a sailing catamaran equipped with Glacier Bay's Ossa Powerlite system, a generator that produces high-voltage DC current to drive an electric propulsion system. Alwoplast-built boats are found in waters all over the world, from Chilean Patagonia to French Polynesia, from the Mediterranean to the Intracoastal Waterway of the United States, and in the Caribbean. The yard is certified by the International Organization for Standardization and adheres to management and quality-control practices of ISO-9001. Since 1996, it's been a member of the American Boat & Yacht Council and has debuted new models at boat shows in the United States. And in 2000, Jimmy Cornell, the bluewater voyager and CW contributing editor, used Alwoplast as a stopover and repair station for his Millennium Odyssey round-the-world flotilla. "Virtually all boats had work done while there," Cornell wrote in an e-mail. "Alex's yard is first class, with very skilled workers."
