Fiesta Marine Products of Hudson, Fla., is expanding production of its commercial grade configured saltwater aluminum pontoon boats to assist in the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

"As a Florida-based regional builder, the containment and cleanup of this oil disaster is paramount," said company president Carl Morahan. "The cleanup in coastal areas will require shallow-water platforms, which [means] our open-deck pontoon boats are ideal for the work ahead. We are giving all orders for containment and cleanup-related boats priority, and have all employees on required overtime to assist our customers' efforts to support the cleanup of this disaster."

Fiesta has been building saltwater aluminum pontoon boats for the coastal areas of Florida, the Gulf Coast states, and the lower Eastern Seaboard since 1978 under the Fiesta and Sunray brand names. Standard production models range from 12 to 30 feet.
