This was a very disheartening event that took place today. Tiffany Yachts has been a premier prouducer of luxury yachts for years now and it is sad to see this happen. A few boats that were being built were also said to have parished in the flames.

This is just a mile from our house; I've watched Tiffanys steam up the river for 40 years and love pulling by on my boat to see his nice work. Very sad.

Steph, That is truly hurtful and unnecessary. A lot of people lives are affected by the loss of this business. The people of the northern neck are and will continue to be proud of tiffany yaht's and the boats they build.

We were shocked and saddened to hear of the loss of Tiffany Yacht Company. What a loss for the family, workers, and community! We are very thankful to hear that there was no loss of life in this tragedy.

I spent every summer of my childhood in Reedville and was so worried about the people who worked at Tiffany's that when my mom called with news of the fire, I went online to see if everyone got out okay. I hope Tiffany's will rebuild at that location and continue to make beautiful yachts for generations to come.

I was at the fire, along with other fire members. This is a sad day for the community. Not only are employees going to be out of work, but the Cockrell family has been devastated. Our prayers are with all of you

For Steph Meador's information, my son-n-law (Don Liner) works at Tiffany's and he is not a drunk. There are a lot of men that take pride in their work that work there and they are not drunks either. We need Tiffany's. I hope they rebuild. Time will tell. Don't be happy at someone elses loss. I am so sorry this happened.

We were all so sad to learn what happened today, the only saving grace was that no one was physically injured...The Cockrells are a wonderful family with strong roots in the community; and this is a very devasting situation for them. Our prayers and heartfelt thoughts are with their families and employees.

As a proud resident of the Northern Neck I would like for people to know that Tiffany Yachts is in a sense a landmark to our area. I am truly offended by people that do not know our area nor do they support our local economy. The owner's and worker's of Tiffany Yachts are at a great loss today and so is our community.

I have wonderful memories of the NN and Tiffanys is one of them. I always enjoyed talking with the them when I worked at Grainger. I was brought to tears to hear what happened, but glad no one was hurt. Odis, pls tell your daughter that there are people that care for you and yours and the great employees! And I can't wait to come visit my family and watch you rebuild! God bless you, your family and the employees.

My thoughts go out to the Cockrell Family. The Tiffany crew are all first class people that do first class work. Hope you can rebuild. The NNK need you.

Growing up and staying with my grandmother I remember going to Tiffanys to watch the boat races. Later in years I had the pleasure to work there with some very talented people. All of the Cockrells are good friends and good people. I was there at the fire and it broke my heart. My prayers are with the family and employees. We also can't forget Thanks to all Fire and Rescue that responded for giving their time and risking lives.
