Florida-based Invincible Boats announced an investment of US$50 million as it expands its production capacity in Yucatán.

The Opa-locka company on Friday disclosed its decision to establish a marine boat production plant, most likely in Kanasín. The investment will provide 400 direct short-term jobs starting in August.

This company designs, develops, manufactures and sells high-performance luxury boats, from catamarans and monohulls from 33 to 46 feet, for people who enjoy saltwater sports activities.

Operations Director Thomas Wieners said Yucatán is the ideal location to establish the next production plant. Its great performance as a city, local talent, robust port facilities and a reputation for safety all stood out, he said.

“Although a small group of Invincible employees in Florida will provide support in the beginning, our goal is to hire almost all positions locally,” Wieners said.
