Glasstech’s roots started in 1963 with Nelson Fernandez Sr becoming one of the original employees at the Iconic Boat Builder, Richard Bertram Inc. His first job at the company was as a lamination worker, and by 1980 he had worked his way up to “Vice President of Production and Manufacturing”. In 1986 he resigned from Bertram Yachts, and he and his son, Nelson Fernandez Jr, opened up Glasstech Corp. In 1990, Glasstech moved to its current location on the Tamiami Canal where they did repairs and refits. Glasstech designed and constructed from the keel up their first new build in 1999. Since then, Glasstech has constructed eleven new builds, including their largest and most recent delivery, the 92’ Expedition Vessel "Northstar" in August 2016. Set for delivery in September 2017 is Glasstech's latest new build, a 77’ high speed charter vessel.
