U.K. builder Fairline Yachts said it is recruiting more than 100 workers for its new manufacturing site in Hythe. Fairline purchased the former Green Marine facility on 5 acres last year.
According to a statement, Fairline is looking for skilled laborers to build its new Squadron 64 and the smaller F-LINE 33. The company said strong sales at the Cannes and Southampton boat shows prompted the hiring spree.
“We are now recruiting for our new factory in Hythe, which will build all our larger yachts, as well as increasing production support at our existing base in Oundle, where our models up to 60 feet in length will continue to be made,” said Emma Barton, head of human resources at Fairline.
The recruitment drive will bring the workforce at Hythe to 120 workers.
