To meet demand, center console builder Invincible Boats said it has begun construction of a facility in Mexico to manufacture composite parts. It is the second time in two years that the Opa-Locka, Fla.-based builder has increased operations; last August, the company’s 50,000-square-foot expansion came online.

“Demand has been growing exponentially, which is a blessing, but we want to get customers in their boats as soon as possible,” CEO John Dorton said in a statement. “We are certain that this new facility will accomplish all of that.”

Lead times for the Invincible 46-foot catamaran are up to year, according to the builder.

Invincible’s Composites Center of Excellence will be in Yucatan, Mexico. COO Thomas Wieners said an experienced workforce, logistical capacity and the port of Progreso helped steer the decision.

“It will be a world-class facility that positions us for sustainable growth and preserves our high build quality,” Wieners said in the statement. “This elevates the standard of composites construction facilities in our segment while providing support for our business domestically and internationally in both new-boat construction and parts for service.”
