New for 2014, Destination Yachts has moved into its new facility in Washington, Ind. This facility allows for additional and more efficient production.
Destination Yachts also dropped the direction of using dealers for the western market. The manufacturer found that it was distancing the customer from the builder and this lead to higher pricing structures. This change back to dealing directly with the builder allows Destination Yachts to be closer to the customers and keeps the pricing more competitive.

Last year Destination Yachts worked on developing its new Elite Series with I-Pad controls, an all-new look and all-aluminum frames exterior walls. This boat features great looks, but stays in line with Destination Yacht’s goal to be a price-point leader. Along with that its fiberglass twin hull boat for the coastal areas was also released.
"Destination Yachts is committed to being a full line manufacturing company, keeping our roots based on a price-point boat, but giving our repeat customers a way to step up into a higher-end product." Sheldon Graber, Destination Yachts owner
