Carolina Flare: Boatbuilders Launch Economic Renaissance in the East


Author(s):
Abstract:
The boatbuilding industry in North Carolina has rebounded from its 1980s decline, with approximately 100 companies employing 25,000 workers and pumping $500,000 million into coastal economies.

Others, including New Jersey, Florida, and South Carolina, are sharp competitors for sales.
