You have likely heard us refer to Onslow County’s emerging marine trades cluster. Projects are in the works to bring additional boat builders and related supply chain businesses to support Winter Custom Yachts, Onslow Bay Boats and Waterline Systems, among others. Continued growth can lead to the development of a regional industry cluster.
JOED is pleased that our local boatbuilders are busy and that our region’s marine services sector continues to grow. We are looking forward to continued partnership with these firms and all the others as they expand and adapt to new market forces.
