Georgia-based Sea Born Boats is adding two center console boats, the LX24 and LX21, to its lineup and has started construction on a 30,000-square-foot production addition.

“Sea Born now has a full lineup of five bay boats and four center consoles ranging from 21 to 24 feet,” Composite Research president Wally Bell said in a statement.

Composite Research is the builder of Sea Born, Sundance and Spyder boats.

“We’re excited and looking forward to how these new models will translate to continued success for our dealers, and most importantly happy boat owners,” Bell said.

Unique to the LX series, the new models offer a higher sidewall than Sea Born’s bay boats. The company said it has included forward lounge-style seating and storage capacity below in each LX.

From the console of these boats, the pilot and co-pilot have the option of seated or upright positions because of a convertible leaning post. Aft, the larger models in the series include bench seating and a transom door. The smaller 21-foot model has flip-up seats that — when pushed into the down position — become a rear casting deck.

Composite Research said it released the LX22 last year and several bay boats as part of Sea Born’s growth strategy.

The company said it also recently began construction on a 30,000-square-foot production addition. The newest center consoles and facility upgrades will help to meet the rising sales demands of its increasing network of dealers, the company said.

“We’re always striving to give our dealers the products and tools they need to be successful,” Bell said. “From our other boat brands to these newest models, we want to make it easier for dealers and buyers to come together on the best boat possible while considering needs and budget.”

Apart from new models, Composite Research said it also has added new jobs at its production facility.

“Over the past five to six months we’ve added a few dozen or more positions to our production crew,” production manager Dave Travis said. “We anticipate more of the same as we bring on new dealers and as orders increase.”
