Now that you have refreshed my memory, I do recall the building and seeing some new boats being worked on there as the bridge coming from north gave a good view of it. But for the life of me, I still can't recall ever seeing or paying attention to the name. But I do remember Fleetwings made in Cocoa. They were much smaller boats.

That's a pretty boat.
Interesting. The beam looks rather narrow. I will look at them some more on YW but Mules comments on the cracks is a little scary as I tend to enjoy rougher waters than most. Thanks for posting the link.
