Cruisers Yachts, a premier manufacturer of luxury yachts, has partnered with Alliance Construction on a 56,000-square-foot expansion to its Pulaski facility with a completion date of January 2024.
“One of our core values is to look to the long term, and this expansion project is a testament to that belief,” Mark Pedersen, President of Cruisers Yachts, commented. “We have been looking to expand since we acquired the Pulaski facility in 2021. That plant is designed to build larger yachts, and this expansion provides us with a facility that aligns with our New Product Development plans for the next five years.”
Cruisers Yachts has embarked on this ambitious expansion project with a clear goal: to broaden its horizons and further elevate its yacht manufacturing process. The expansion comprises several key areas, each designed to enhance production and accommodate larger vessels. With a focus on assembly, a brand-new production line spanning 10,893 square feet will feature increased ceiling heights, enabling the assembly of larger yachts. The company is expanding its upholstery section by an impressive 4,300 square feet to facilitate increased production capabilities.
The metal & Maintenance area will boast a generous 15,120 square feet. This will see the company’s capacity production rate increase. 25,749 square feet will be dedicated to warehouse space and will see the addition of new loading docks. Finally, chemical storage and outdoor cold storage will also be expanded.
“Watching the progress since breaking ground this past January has been tremendous, and we are expecting to be moving in this coming February,” Mr Pedersen, continued. “We are very appreciative of the support from the Pulaski community and are excited to fill up this new space with additional job opportunities. It is another big step forward for the continued growth of Cruisers Yachts and the community.”
This momentous expansion isn’t just about square footage; it is about expanding possibilities. Cruisers Yachts will be able to diversify its current model lineup, both in terms of volume and the size of vessels produced. This expansion will introduce two new production lines with the capability to accommodate yachts of up to 75 feet in any style. The Pulaski plant will now boast four production lines, empowering the company to build up to five distinct models.
Incorporating the latest technology, advanced production methods, and a commitment to excellence, Cruisers Yachts is taking a significant stride toward meeting the growing demand for their luxurious, high-performance yachts.
