Center-console performance-boat builder Deep Impact of Miami is about halfway through moving into its new 50,000-square-foot facility, which is just four miles away from its current plant.
The new plant, which is equipped with overhead cranes and a 70-foot-long paint booth, has twice as much space as the old plant and that space will be better utilized, according to the company’s Tim Gallagher.
“The new plant will make our production line much more efficient,” said Gallagher. “It’s a major step forward.”
The expanded facility comes at a good time for builder. According to Gallagher, Deep Impact has five orders for its recently released 39-footer and its 42-foot model will be released in 2012.
“We’ll have no trouble filling the new plant,” said Gallagher.
The company also is reconfiguring its popular 33-foot offering in both angling-specific and “LS” versions.
“The LS will be more a luxurious, performance-cruising version of the 33,” said Gallagher.
