The sibling boat brands now boast 19,000sq ft of production space in Mountain Home, Arkansas

Bass Cat and Yar-Craft Boats have completed construction of a new building and renovations to existing facilities that add 4,000sq ft of space and should increase production by 40%, according to a company news release.

The sibling boat brands now boast 19,000sq ft of production space at the Mountain Home, Arkansas headquarters, giving the maker of bass and walleye fishing boats a dedicated production area for each brand as well as a new repair facility, upholstery sewing and lamination booths, with an area dedicated to building new production moulds.

The expansion was undertaken to help the company meet product demand.

“Our customers and business partners are happy with the progress we are making. The improvements made possible through the expansion will improve our staff, our product and our overall operations,” said Rick Pierce, president of Bass Cat and Yar-Craft. “Our sales department now has the flexibility and capacity to meet the demands of both brands, which we could not do previously.”
