Florida-based Action Craft Boats said it will begin production at a second facility in response to growing demand for its bay and flats boats.
In addition to the lamination work done by Action Craft, Perry Composites of Perry, Fla., will maintain the molds on several models. The company will spray the gelcoat and complete the fiberglass work.
The completed hulls will then be shipped to the main location in Cape Coral, Fla., for final assembly, rigging and quality checks.
"We had been looking to expand our manufacturing space from our current 15,000 square feet to around 25,000," Action Craft Boats president Chad Kovarik said in a statement. "When we saw the fine craftsmanship and finish work that Perry Composites is doing on the half-million-dollar yachts it builds, we were really sold on their capabilities."
Action Craft was purchased in 2012 by Kovarik's CK Prime Investments Inc. The company is seeking to expand its dealer network in the Gulf Coast and Mid-Atlantic regions.
The company builds 12 models from 16 to 24 feet.
