Yellowfin Inc. announced today it has unveiled its first fleet.
The company, based in Santa Cruz, Calif., will roll out its small, eco-friendly, recreational-type boats for the first time.
The boats will be built at its facility in San Luis Obispo, Calif.
The small boats will have an internal design that’s 100% recycled and 100% made in the U.S.
The company’s chief executive officer, Steve Schuster, said the small boats were designed for people who enjoy small craft, but wanted a small boat that is easy to transport.
The boats are smaller than the big, high-tech boats used in commercial fleets, and are more portable, Schuster said.
The companies goal is to be able to bring the small craft to the public, and help create jobs.
The small boats are expected to be ready for commercial use in the coming months, Schutch said.
The first fleet will be produced with a single-seat, 20-foot-long boat.
The first production run is expected to have 50 boats, with a full-size boat and one recreational boat, Schulton said.
They will be sold through a combination of the company’s website and local retailers.
The smaller boats will also have a water-resistance rating of 50 feet or less.
The companies website states the boats are 100% environmentally-neutral and 100 percent made in California.
They have been designed to last for years and will be environmentally friendly as well.
