Wegener comes to Austal USA as the company moves into its next stage of expansion at its state-of-the-art facilities in Mobile. The Austal USA yard is currently busy with the construction of two dinner cruise vessels, one a 111ft catamaran to be delivered late this year to Island Queen Cruises in Miami, and the other a 140ft. monohull to be delivered next April to Cloud Nine in New York.
