SINGAPORE - Stronger demand for luxury boats in North America and Asia helped Singapore-listed yacht maker Grand Banks Yachts post its first full-year profit in six years.
The builder of two luxury boat brands recorded net profit of $800,000 for the fourth quarter - its third consecutive quarter of profit. This was a reversal from a $2.3 million net loss in the same period last year.
Revenue for the fourth quarter came in 12 per cent higher at $13.2 million from $11.8 million last year.
The company's improved performance in the last three quarters lifted net profit for the full year ended June 30 to $1 million, from a loss of $5.2 million in the previous financial year.
