Barracuda Boats is moving its manufacturing operation from Florida to South Carolina. Company founder and designer Anthony Kalil said his company’s collaboration with industry veteran Tommy Pownall — who has a wealth of experience in fiberglass components and manufacturing — and relocation to the 100,000-square-foot facility will allow Barracuda to scale up operations.
“This new partnership is extremely exciting,” Kalil said in a statement. “Tommy is a high-impact partner that brings exceptional skills in quality manufacturing into the fold.” He added that Barracuda boats “can now be scaled and offered to a worldwide dealer network.”
Barracuda builds several models from 18 to 23 feet, and will offer a 25-footer later this year. Kalil told Trade Only Today that the lineup will include boats to 35 feet in 2023.
