Aleutian Yachts will build under new name

Publish date:

Aleutian Yachts, which builds steel expedition vessels from 82 to 122 feet, is now building under its wholly owned subsidiary, Citadel Yachts.

"When we realized that another builder was using the Aleutian name for one of its models, we decided to avoid confusion and rebrand our vessels under the Citadel trademark. This allows us to guarantee our customers the quality and service that falls under our specific brand," said Greg Ward, CEO of Aleutian Yachts, in a statement.

Citadel's most recent delivery is Miss Lisa, a 92-foot trideck expedition yacht that was launched Sept. 4 and christened Sept. 12 by her owners.

The Tacoma, Wash.-based company is currently building a 102-footer planned for a winter 2010 launch.
