Boat builder Ocean Master relocates to Stuart


Boat builder Ocean Master, which builds semi-custom center console fishing boats and yacht tenders from 27 to 33 feet, has relocated its headquarters from West Palm Beach to Stuart, Fla.

Located between I-95 and Florida’s Turnpike, the new facility is close to the St. Lucie River and St. Lucie Inlet. It is 16,000 square feet, with a 26,000-square-foot expansion planned as Ocean Master adds new models.

“Plans are underway to begin producing a larger center console,” owner Mark Hauptner said. “Our new modern, efficient space will allow us to have more boats in production at any given time.”

Ocean Master had been in WPB for 40 years. For more information, visit
