Alexander Marine, the manufacturer of Ocean Alexander yachts, announced an expansion to its manufacturing facility in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, to meet a demand for larger yachts.



With nine new boats sold this summer, Alexander Marine will close its yard in China to consolidate personnel into one yard.



“There’s been a very strong response to our designs in the 90-foot and 112-foot range,” Kevin Tseng, executive vice president of Alexander Marine, said in a news release. “Many of our owners stay with us as they move up in size and we want to continue to maintain our high standards … by expanding the Taiwan yard and bringing our highly skilled employees back into one location.”
