(Jul 25, 2017 - Clearwater, FL)
Coastal Marine, parent company of ArrowCat Catamarans, and Endeavour Catamaran Corporation, both industry leaders in the design, manufacture and sales of power catamarans, announced today that as a result of recent successful, collaborative projects, the companies have merged to form Endeavour Corporation. Located in St. Petersburg/Clearwater, Florida, the new Endeavour Corporation will have a marina and boatyard with an impressive 60,000 square-foot service and manufacturing facility that will make Endeavour Corporation one of the largest catamaran builders in the country.
"Over the years, many boat manufacturers have taken their facilities to other countries in search of specific expertise and cost considerations; for many reasons, we are very excited to bring boat-building back into the States," said Rob Harty, President of Coastal Marine and ArrowCat Catamarans "Florida has forever been a domestic boat-building mecca with a deep pool of talented skilled craftsman; we are now in the right place, at the right time to expand."
With instantly recognizable architecture that is internationally renowned for superior craftsmanship and performance capability, these vessels offer spacious and comfortable interiors. Durable and easy to handle in varying weather conditions, the fuel efficiency allows for long voyages. Both companies earn rave reviews for unsurpassed customer service. The catamarans are factory direct only, built with the owner's expectations in mind.
Endeavour Corporation will produce luxury catamarans under the Endeavour TrawlerCat line and performance catamarans under the ArrowCat brand. The new Endeavour 340 model that resulted from their collaboration will be featured this fall and is a perfect blend of simplicity, elegance, and efficiency.
Bob Vincent, President of Endeavour Catamaran Corporation, said, "The success of our collaboration surpassed expectations and produced a sleek and contoured catamaran with beautiful interiors. We will continue to build on a platform that perfectly utilizes our existing processes, offering customization that is attractively priced and extremely well-executed. The design experience that both companies bring will produce power catamarans that please and astonish, making Endeavour Corporation an industry powerhouse."
In addition to upgrading and expanding the manufacturing facilities with a state-of-the art painting facility, Endeavour Corporation plans to renovate and rename the marina and boatyard American Yacht & Custom beginning in 2018.
