Ocean Alexander expands facility in Taiwan

Posted on

Alexander Marine, builder of Ocean Alexander yachts, announced the expansion of its manufacturing facility.

The company said “record-breaking sales this past summer” culminated in nine new-boat sales, requiring the expansion in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

Sales trends have shown an increase in larger yachts, and the yard will expand to meet the demand for them.

“There’s been a very strong response to our designs in 90-foot and 112-foot range,” Alexander Marine executive vice president Kevin Tseng said. “Many of our owners stay with us as they move up in size, and we want to continue to maintain our high standards for build quality, material integrity and our renowned wood craftsmanship. We are able to fulfill that standard by expanding the Taiwan yard and bringing our highly skilled employees back into one location.”

The yard in China will be closed so the company “can consolidate key personnel with many years of boatbuilding experience into one yard.”
