Ebbtide Holdings LLC, which manufactures the Boca Bay and Aquasport lines, has begun to revitalize the former Ebbtide facility in White Bluff, Tennessee. The company told The Tennessean that it plans to create 100 jobs over the next five years.

The company, which bought the property this year, expects the 140,000-square-foot plant to be operational in several weeks. It will manufacture center console boats from 20 to 30 feet.

Ebbtide was sold to a Chinese owner in 2012 and shut down several years ago. The Dickson County commission voted recently to act as “conduit” for state grant money. The owners of Boca Ray will use $200,000 in grants for “work on their property,” County Mayor Bob Rial told the paper. The money is designed for workforce development.

“We are very excited to tap into the experienced boat builders in the area,” Stephen Daves, president of Ebbtide Holdings LLC, told the paper.
