New Factory at Northshore Now Operational

New Factory at Northshore Now Operational

15th April, 2009

Building works are almost complete for the additional 20,000 sq ft factory and offices at Northshore Shipyard, with the main factory, now fully operational.

The increased capacity will allow 70 - 90 yachts to be built per year, and will also enable larger Southerly's to be built on site.

The new sales showroom is due for completion later this year.

Production Director, Miles Webb comments: "The ability to increase our capacity provides significant opportunities for us. We have now become the largest sail yacht manufacturer in the UK and we are recognised, throughout the world, for our high standards of build quality and engineering. We are strongly investing in R&D which is putting us at the forefront of British boat building".
