Tarboro, N.C.-based catamaran builder World Cat has significantly expanded its production capabilities with the addition of a 265,000-square-foot facility in nearby Greenville.

Combined, the builder’s two plants now have a total of 405,000 square feet of manufacturing space.

World Cat said they have invested $2.5 million into the new space and will hire up to 60 employees, bringing its total number of employees to 300.

“This new Greenville, NC location was ideal for producing our 40’ World Cat Custom flagship models, and further expanding our capabilities,” said president Andrew Brown in a statement. “With the continued growing demand for our catamarans, this move will allow us to effectively manage our customer and dealer expectations as well as provide support for new product development.”

The plant will focus on building its flagship, 40-foot models, with plans including housing a showroom and introducing new models; a new model is expected later this year.
