Re: C&C sold......

not my words, but theirs;
USWatercraft of Warren RI and Tartan Marine Co are pleased to announce that USWatercraft has acquired the exclusive rights to build, develop, distribute and market all new models of the famed C&C Yachts brand from Tartan Marine. "We are extremely excited to carry on the traditions established by the legendary Canadian boat builders who introduced C&C Yachts some 50 years ago. We look forward to building state of the art, beautiful, high quality & competitively priced C&C sailboats, at our 100,000 square ft. facility in Warren, RI." said Randy Borges president of USWatercraft. USWatercraft plans to begin production of its new C&C models this fall.

Tartan Marine Co, builder of Tartan Yachts will no longer produce the C&C 101 and 115 models under the C&C brand, but will reintroduce and build these models under the Tartan brand as the Tartan 101 and 115. "We are pleased to have such an outstanding boat builder as USWatercraft take over the future development of the iconic C&C Yachts brand and focus on servicing the numerous C&C yacht owners around the world, while we, at the same time, can remain laser-focused on marketing, distributing and building the iconic Tartan brand and supporting our loyal Tartan owners throughout the world."said Steve Malbasa, owner of Tartan Marine.
About US Watercraft, LLC

USWatercraft LLC (USW) manufactures Alerion Yachts, True North Yachts, and North Rip sportfishing boats, formerly built by Pearson Marine Group. Additionally, USW is the licensed US builder of the J/22, J/24, J80, J/105, Farr 30, and Farr 40. Our facility is located in Warren, RI, where we provide world-class service, repairs, re-fits and upgrades of various one-designs, grand-prix, cruising, and power boats.

Now owned by USWatercraft, Pearson has always been about experienced leaders creating markets and capturing competitive advantages through customer focus, innovation and continuous improvement. USWatercraft carries forward Pearson’s rich 50-year history.

History of Pearson Marine Group:

Prior to 2004, Pearson was a division of TPI Composites, LLC in Warren, RI. In 2004, the wind energy and Swimex divisions of TPI were sold, along with the TPI name, allowing investors to capture the value that was created. Those two businesses, which today are TPI Composites, LLC and Swimex, LLC continue to flourish. At the time of these transactions, the marine division, which was not sold, was organized under a newly formed company, Pearson Composites, LLC. Since 2004, that marine business has transformed itself into what it is today, under the ownership of USWatercraft.
I wonder if they are hiring?

If you could buy say, the Aston Martin name to use for a sport car you were going to manufacture, would you? Or would you call it the Rugosa GT?
Perhaps 'failed' is a little harsh, but 26', 32, LF39, even the last 27' which performed well but lacked interior headroom, come on, nobody is perfect. Point was that not all models are profitable or well received by the buying public.

And Rugosa GT, think not, it's a Japanese rose.

Re: C&C sold......

Yes USWatercraft does manufacture the J-Boat models listed above. However the J/70, J/88, J/95, J/111 are all produced by CCF Composites in Bristol, RI. J-Boats also has licensed builders in Europe, South America, South Africa and China.

USWatercraft does NOT own J-Boats.
