33rd Strike Group said an increase in demand and production after last year’s dealer meeting required an expansion from 30,000 square feet to 80,000 at the boatbuilder’s North Carolina plant.

This year’s dealer meeting brought news that the catamaran and pontoon builder is now manufacturing in more than 100,000 square feet and producing boats even more rapidly, the company said.

Several new models of catamarans, as well as pontoons, were introduced at the dealer meeting. The catamarans will now be available in 12, 16, 18 and 20 feet, as well as high- and low-gunwale models.

The pontoons were rebranded as Lexington Pontoons.
