Goetz Custom Boats

Goetz Custom Technologies, LLC of Bristol, RI has successfully bought the assets of Eric Goetz Custom Sailboats Inc., from the state appointed receiver. “In this transfer, we very much appreciate the gratifying personal loyalty of the employees and the unwavering support of industry partners through what has admittedly been a difficult transition for us,” said Eric Goetz, founder of Goetz Custom Technologies, LLC. “Goetz Custom Technologies [GCT] now has a very strong financial base and a new strategic plan for future growth that we are confident will serve us very well in the coming decades. This plan includes servicing Goetz Custom Sailboats’ previously built high performance, hightech custom power and sailboats. In addition to building new custom boats we are adding a new line of high-tech semi-custom sailboats and powerboats.”German Frers is designing the sailing yachts, and GCT has partnered with C. Raymond Hunt of Boston to design a new line of hightech semi-custom luxury powerboats. Employees in GCT’s 45,000 square foot Bristol manufacturing facility, which opened in 2007, are completing two 82 foot sailboats, and the company provides boat building support services including full refit capabilities of alterations, painting, custom metal work and canvas work in its original Bristol facility. GCT is also launching brokerage and charter divisions.
