Boat-building company picks Anacortes site

BELLINGHAM -- An Australia boat-building company has decided to open a facility in Anacortes rather than in Bellingham.
Aluminum Boats Australia had been exploring a 30,000-square-foot site at the Fairhaven Marine Industrial Park near the Bellingham Cruise Terminal. But company officials concluded that the inability to directly launch certain vessels from that site added too much to business costs.
The Bellingham Herald said the company found a site in Anacortes with direct launch capabilities, but is delaying its expansion until it secures a new business contract.
The company manufactures catamaran-style boast for tourism and passenger ferries, among other things.
