Out Island Sport Yachts announced Monday that it will be relocating to a new 35,000-square-foot production facility at 107 Edgewood Ave. in Berlin, N.J.

The move and consolidation will allow all three boat lines to be built under one roof.

The product lines include East Coast Skiffs, models from 14 to 24 feet; 24-, 27-, 30- and 34-foot Silverhawks; and the all-new Sportsman 24 and 28 by Silverhawk.

Out Island currently builds semicustom yachts of 34 and 38 feet. A new 44-foot Express is in development and is expected to debut in the next model year.

Prior to the move Silverhawk was in Woodbine, N.J., and Out Island was in Cologne, N.J.

Dealers interested in representing any or all of the lines are asked to call Jim Mercanto at (609) 804-8884.
