Sea Hunt steps up production

Sea Hunt Boats has increased its production to keep up with demand, the company reports.

"We are blessed; business is good and orders are steady. We have had to increase production to keep up with our dealers demand," Capt. Larry Jett, director of dealer development told Soundings Trade Only. "We have some great dealers working very hard, and our people here at Sea Hunt are determined to deliver high quality at a value price."

The Columbia, S.C., manufacturer has increased production from 20 to 25 boats a week and has added staff. Sea Hunt has 68 employees and 60 dealers.

"Winter shows are getting sales like pre-2007, and Statistical Surveys still has us as the No. 1 selling saltwater boat in our class three years running," Jett said.

Sea Hunt Boat Company began in 1995 when a father-son team started building center console fishing boats. By 2004 the company that started in a one-room shop had expanded to a compact plant. In March 2006 Sea Hunt began operations in a 170,000-square-foot facility.
