When was Merritt Boats Founded
Merritt's Boat and Engine Works opened in 1948, but at that time, it was primarily in operation to maintain the family's charter boats. It wasn't until 1955 that the two sons (Buddy and Allen Merritt) began building boats. Today Merritt Boats travel the world raising Sailfish and Marlin, but their first boats lacked almost all of today's creature comforts and were focused exclusively on Tuna fishing. The first model to come out of Merritt's was the famous 37,' and since that time, they have built custom sportfishing boats as large as 86'.
Where are Merritt Boats Made
Merritt Boats are made in Pompano Beach, Florida and have been made there for decades.
