The Cornwall, UK-based company is to move into new, purpose built premises in Falmouth later this year.
Cornwall, UK-based Rustler Yachts is to move into new, purpose built premises in May 2003. Work has begun on the new building, which is part of the Ponsharden scheme, in Falmouth. It covers a total area of 5.12 acres, and in addition to the Rustler Yachts facility incorporates boat storage for the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, boat lay-up facilities and slipway, a café and a park and ride scheme for Falmouth.
Over 3000 sq m of the site is dedicated to Rustler’s state of the art boatbuilding and extensive refit facilities, catering for all types of vessels up to 45 tonnes and 21.3m (70ft) in length. Rustler Yachts will be moving it’s operation to the new building which will house a display area and brokerage, an engineering workshop, a spray booth, Mezzanine workshops, extensive office space and a sail loft in addition to the main boat building area for new boats and refit work.
“We’re extremely excited to be moving into our new facility next year,” says Nick Offord, director of Rustler Yachts. “Expanding our workshop capabilities allows us to build more of our extensive range of yachts which now includes eight models that have been incredibly popular in the yachting world for over ten years.”
Rustler Yachts recently acquired the brand name and moulds of Rival-Bowman and Starlight. “The Bowman 42, 45 and 48 and the Starlight 35, 39 and 46 are all well proven blue water cruisers and compliment Rustlers profile in both build quality and philosophy,” commented Nick.
The new premises will also provide an extensive refit service for all types of vessels up to 45 tonnes and 21.3m (70ft) in length. Rustler Yachts will also be teaming up with Port Pendennis Marina to operate the park and ride service in the summer and the boat lay-up facility in the winter. Port Pendennis Marina has berths for over 130 yachts. The boatyard company will provide winter lay-up for up to 200 yachts and is investing in a 45 tonne boat hoist for launch and retrieval operations at the site.
