Albury Brothers Boats said it has expanded into a second production facility a block away from its existing plant in Riviera Beach, Fla., to meet increased demand.

The new facility has 20,000 square feet and is dedicated to building Albury Brothers’ 27- and 33-foot models. The company’s 20- and 23-foot models will continue to be built in the original 16,000-square-foot plant. Albury Brothers also operates a 4,500-square-foot sales and rigging shop.

The company said the new and larger facility will enable it to produce its new 33-foot model and keep up with increasing demand for the 27-foot model without sacrificing capacity required for its most popular 23-foot model. The 23 is also built on Man O’ War Cay in Abaco, Bahamas, along with the original 18.5-foot fiberglass model.

“We are delighted to be in our new facility,” Albury Brothers president Jeff Lichterman said in a statement. “It is very gratifying to reach this level of achievement since we started in 2,400 square feet. I attribute our success to the excellence of Willard Albury’s design and the quality our craftsmen exhibit every day.”

“We are also pleased to announce our association with Paradise Marine Center in Gulf Shores, Alabama,” he said. “The Myers family built their business on technical excellence. After servicing and repowering several Albury Brothers boats, we gained a mutual respect for each other, as we share the same commitment to quality.”

New Albury Brothers boats are on display at Paradise Marine Center and available for immediate delivery. The company said its boats have been built for more than 60 years by three generations of the Albury family.
