“We are thrilled to take advantage of this opportunity to open a centrally located U.S. facility,” said Christophe Lavigne, president of Highfield Boats USA. “Our large-boat business in North America has been growing rapidly, and this substantial investment in real estate, personnel, and equipment is a testament to our commitment to supporting that growth. In 2022 and 2023, sales of our large units (boats over 20 feet) have more than quadrupled and this expansion is dedicated to supporting and expanding on this success. We have assembled a team of industry veterans with over 200 years of combined experience in the marine business to staff the facility and drive this initiative forward.”
