Sea Ray has extended the water test ramp at its manufacturing facility in Palm Coast, Florida, and celebrated the infrastructure improvement recently along with the launch of its new L-Class series of yachts.

“We have already seen tremendous demand for the L650 Fly, which is produced here at the Palm Coast Facility,” Sea Ray President Tim Schiek stated in a press release. “The new ramp will allow us to continue meeting demand.”

All L650 Fly models must be water-delivered and cannot be transported by land, according to Sea Ray. The new ramp allows for the movement of up to 150,000 pounds, which lets Sea Ray workers move boats 50 feet and larger directly from the production line into the water, where testing and delivery can take place.

“Because of the yachts that can now be manufactured and quality tested here,” Shiek said, “we anticipate more than 100 jobs will be added to the facility.”
