Fishing Holdings LLC, doing business as Triton Boats, is expanding its aluminum boat line with two new series of boats.

The Tennessee-based builder of fiberglass and aluminum boats will manufacture the X Series and Utility Series aluminum boats in a new facility in Flippin, Ark.

Triton’s aluminum facility includes existing manufacturing space as well as office and administrative areas. The company will invest $2.5 million to transition and expand the facility and plans to create more than 50 jobs during the next several months.

The new aluminum boat line will initially include three Triton X Series models and four Triton Utility Series models designed to reach a variety of anglers and hunters, with a broader line of aluminum models to follow. Triton aluminum boats are scheduled to begin production during the fourth quarter of this year.

“The decision to extend our reach in aluminum boats was simply a matter of listening to our customers, who were looking for an alternative to the current market offerings,” Triton founder Earl Bentz said in a statement. “We continually strive to offer our customers a top-of-the-line aluminum boat. Triton aluminum boats have been designed to exceed boating industry standards, and we look forward to giving our customers the same unparalleled stability and performance that they have come to rely upon with all of our boats.”
