Pursuit Boats Begins Florida Campus Expansion


Late last month, Pursuit Boats broke ground on the first stage of an expansion that will expand its Fort Pierce, Florida grounds to more than 100 acres, 773,000 square feet of manufacturing and support space and 600 employees.

“Pursuit Boats has been manufacturing our award-winning, luxury fishing boats in Fort Pierce since 1983,” says Bruce Thompson, Pursuit president. “After 37 years here, we are a multi-generational employer. We and our 400 current employees are thrilled to be able to stay and expand here at home, something we’ve wanted to do for a long time.”

The first phase will add 182,115 square feet to the original campus, which was constructed in 1983, six years after the brand began in Holland, Michigan in 1977. In 2018, Malibu Boats acquired the company.
