Vanquish Boats to relocate to South Florida

VanquishBoats series

Vanquish Boats said it is moving production from Bristol, R.I., to South Florida. The builder said in a statement that the “growth and expansion” of the brand made the relocation necessary. The new facility will have three times more floor space and 25 percent more production capacity, according to the statement.

“While continuing to embrace the handcrafting assembly process, a measure of computer-aided manufacturing techniques will be incorporated,” said Morgan Huntley, Vanquish CEO, in the statement. “The new facility will also enable Vanquish to meet the ever-changing demands of our customers with greater customization, and dramatically assist us as we look to develop and build more innovative models for the future.”

Huntley said Vanquish also is expanding its distribution network, having added new international dealers. It plans to add 10 more in 2019.
