Sea Sport Boats Inc., of Bellingham, Wash., purchased the assets of Fluid Marine, the Auburn, Wash.-based builder of C-Dory, Skagit Orca and Tom Cat boats.

Sea Sport has been manufacturing boats for recreational use, charter use and governmental agencies since 1955. In 2006, the company purchased the assets of Osprey Boats and began building the Osprey line out of its Bellingham facility.

Sea Sport says the addition of the new brands to its line was a natural fit.

"All of the brands are nationally recognized pilothouse-style boats that have earned renowned recognition in their class," the company said in a statement, adding that the expansion will solidify Sea Sport as the "premier builder for pilothouse-style boats in the nation."

The company plans to be operational with the new boat line within the month.
