Due to the overwhelming market reception and solid retail demand for its new L-Class yachts, Sea Ray will increase production capacity by reactivating its Sykes Creek manufacturing facility in Merritt Island, Fla. The expanded production will commence in the summer of 2015. Hiring will begin immediately, and the company expects to create up to 100 new jobs over the next 12 months.
“We’re very pleased with the great success of the new L-Class and look forward to adding jobs back to the Sykes Creek community,” said Sea Ray President Tim Schiek. “We are more committed than ever to delivering industry leading products and ensuring that our customers have the most enjoyable boat ownership experience possible.”
