Albury Brothers Boats is opening an office at Newport Shipyard and Marina in Newport, R.I., to better serve clients in the Northeast.

The company, which builds boats in the Bahamas and in Florida, will open the office in September in conjunction with the Newport boat and brokerage shows.

To inaugurate the new location, an Albury Brothers 27 will make the voyage from Sandy Hook, N.J., to Newport on Sept. 4.

The boat will be available for inspection or sea trial all along the route, and in Narragansett Bay during the Labor Day weekend. It will remain on display at the shipyard through September.

The Newport office will be staffed on a seasonal part-time basis.

“We are excited and pleased to have this opportunity,” Albury Brothers president Jeff Lichterman said in a statement. “Our boats have a nice following from Marblehead and Maine, through Shelter Island and the Hamptons. Having a central location in Newport, especially at the fabulous shipyard, will allow prospective clients to inspect and sea-trial our boats without having to travel to West Palm Beach.”

The company also announced a partnership with Eastport Yacht Co./ Weaver-Price Design in Annapolis, Md. Tom Weaver will represent Albury Brothers Boats on the Chesapeake Bay on a non-exclusive basis.

Albury Brothers Boats are built in Man-O-War Cay, Abaco, Bahamas, and Riviera Beach, Fla.

Recently Albury Brothers in Florida expanded into a second production facility that is dedicated to building the company’s 27- and 33-foot models. The 20- and 23-foot models are built in the original plant.

The company also operates a 4,500-square-foot sales and rigging shop.
