Much loved Australian boatbuilder Trailcraft has announced its takeover by Chinese heavyweight Jiangyin Marine Equipment Manufacture.

The entire Trailcraft range will now be produced in Jiangyin, near Shanghai, in what Trailcraft called "a vast, state-of-the-art factory," manned by several thousand staff.

Trailcraft said that while the move would allow it to target the expanding Asian and South Pacific market, it would first concentrate on stocking its Australian dealer network in time for summer.

According to Trailcraft, the takeover would allow the brand to produce up to 10,000 boats per year. It said consumers can expect considerable savings on Trailcraft products in the future. Visit for more info.
