GULFPORT (WLOX) -- A Florida woman came to Gulfport Wednesday and watched in amazement as her $40 million yacht was launched into the industrial seaway.
The Norwegian Queen Two is a three deck vessel with a very contemporary look. It was built by the craftsmen at Trinity Yachts in Gulfport.
At a time when the U.S. economy is struggling, the Trinity shipyard remains very busy. Trinity's president credits that to a growing international customer base that's taking advantage of a weak U.S. dollar.
"The overseas clients think our boats are on sale. So, it's great for our business. The last six boats, we've sold to overseas clients. And we see that as a continuing trend," Trinity Yachts President John Dane said.
