Young Endeavour sails on with Birdon
Port Macquarie company Birdon Group has secured a $37 million contract to deliver a replacement state of-the-art sail training ship.
Birdon CEO, Jamie Bruce said it was an honour to have been selected to design and build the Young Endeavour replacement tall ship, which will create up to 50 new jobs in the mid north coast.
“It is an important step in Birdon's vision, as an industry partner, to deliver increasing sovereign capability in support of the Australian Naval Shipbuilding Plan,” Mr Bruce said.
The Young Endeavour is operated by the Royal Australia Navy and provides youth development and sail training to Australian youth under The Young Endeavour Youth Scheme.
