ACC employs 11 full–time boat builders. We also employ many local sub–contractors year round.

William "Billzo" Koffler

I have been involved with boats since my childhood. Sailing on Barnegat Bay with my dad started my fascination and love for boats. I moved to Maine in my early 20’s, and attended The Landing School. There I earned a certificate in boat design, graduating as the class valedictorian. After spending another six months learning wooden boat construction, I took a job with a hi-tech custom builder where for 13 years I built grand prix race boats and advanced composite cruising boats, 10 of which I spent as a lead builder.

In 2001, I founded Aquidneck Custom Composites. I bought tools and a trailer to become a mobile yacht repair business. Scott O'Connell soon joined me and the rest is history. ACC now builds world class custom boats and composite parts.

Scott is a company partner and has been at ACC since the beginning, in 2001. Scott spent 7–years building grand prix racing sailboats boats before joining ACC. Before that, Scott attended and graduated from the Landing School of Boatbuilding and Design. Scott is the well–respected boss on the floor. His classic wooden boat training and a combined 17–years of boat building has made him a master craftsman in all sense of the word.
