Company Donates Sailboat to Sea Scouts

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — Southern Cross Building Products, LLC recently donated a Catalina sailboat to local Sea Scout Ship SS247, a division of the Boy Scouts of America.

"We are always looking for ways to strengthen our ties to the local community and felt that the young adults of Sea Scout Ship (SS247) give back a positive message to our community,” said Rodrigo Vera, president of Southern Cross Building Products, LLC.

The 24-foot Catalina sailboat is one of the most popular boats made in the Unites States. It can be used for day trips and also has ample space for several people in its cabin for longer offshore and long distance voyages.

Sea Scouting is a division of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women aged 14 through 20. Its purpose is to bring a character building, citizenship training, and fitness program to the youth of America. Sea Scout Ships are organized by churches, civic clubs, schools, maritime organizations, businesses, unions, and other community organizations that provide adult volunteer leaders, program resources, and meeting facilities. These Ships plan programs related to maritime careers, seamanship, and service.

Southern Cross Building Products, LLC manufactures and distributes a full range of sustainable flooring and wall-building products made of glass, wood, stone and clay.

We were unfamiliar with the Sea Scouts until we learned about this donation. The sailboat will be put to good use as young people use it to learn about safe boating.
