TACOMA, Wash., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Aleutian Yachts, builders of steel expedition yachts from 82 to 122 feet, is now building yachts under its wholly owned subsidiary, Citadel Yachts. "When we realized that another builder was using the Aleutian name for one of its models, we decided to avoid confusion and re-brand our vessels under the Citadel trademark. This allows us to guarantee our customers the quality and service that falls under our specific brand," says Greg Ward, CEO of Aleutian Yachts.
This high quality is demonstrated by Miss Lisa, the company's most recent delivery. The 92-foot tri-deck expedition yacht was launched on September 4, 2009 and christened by her owners on September 12, 2009.
"I am quite certain that Miss Lisa is the highest-quality steel expedition yacht ever built in America," said owner's representative Mark Masciarotte. He added that the yacht is sure to draw a crowd due to her impressive specifications, her magnificent, paneled anigre interior by renowned designer Joseph Artese and her spacious arrangement, which includes a full-width, on-deck master suite, three double guest staterooms and two double crew cabins.
Miss Lisa's owner has extensive, long-range cruising experience as evidenced by his choice of steel for optimum strength and durability. His decision to build at Aleutian is also a testament to the company's ability to build yachts equipped with the utmost in safety standards while offering comfortable cruising in the most demanding sea conditions.
Citadel's currently building a 102-footer featuring a 28-foot beam. Planned for a winter 2010 launch, her interior square footage parallels most yachts that are 20 feet longer.
Aleutian Yachts has been building steel yachts since 2004 with a consistent focus on providing the safest vessels possible with unsurpassed interior volume and long-range cruising quality.
Company representatives will be on hand during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Oct. 29 - Nov. 2, 2009 in the Yacht Builder's Tent at the Expedition Yachts International booth, stand numbers 717-718.
