Behind the Boat
It all began in 1992 with a handful of experienced and dedicated craftsmen who shared a powerful dream of creating a company that would design and build the strongest, safest and most reliable boats on the water.
Today that dream is a reality in EdgeWater Boats.
Behind the Boat
While we continue to maintain small-company agility, responsiveness and drive, our twelve-year partnership with the North Marine Group, whose cutting-edge technologies are found aboard everything from America’s Cup racing yachts to the space shuttle, has given us the technological and financial resources necessary to create the highly advanced product our customers demand, and ultimately, design your dream boat.
Today, EdgeWater employs more than 175 people, in a 94,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility that produces a limited number of uniquely handcrafted boats each year.
Our managers, designers and engineers are all active boaters. We cruise, dive, and fish with our families. We spend time on the water with EdgeWater owners, gathering their input, ideas and suggestions for constant improvement. Our experience on the water drives the way we design and build our boats.
As a direct reflection of our ongoing commitment to listening to our customers, we are delighted to have received several CSI awards for outstanding customer satisfaction.
We also have won multiple marketing awards, including a Gold and Bronze Telly Award for our nationwide commercial spots.
Design / Innovation
Our iconic craftsmanship creates a visually stunning boat. But it’s not just pretty. It’s solid. Lightweight. Tough against all conditions. Our entire fleet — center console or dual console boats — is made for the family. Adventure bound. Our owners create memories with our boats. We are just the dream factory to take them there.
Boat Building Pioneers
An ironclad boatbuilder. Intelligently engineered. Made for the angler and the family.
After decades at Boston Whaler, Bob Dougherty elected to leave his position as director of engineering to pursue his dream of making a new, superior kind of boat. The 18-foot Marlin Center Console is developed in a garage in Edgewater Florida. This rugged, unsinkable boat featuring “Permagrid” construction set a new standard in small boat structural design
The EdgeWater Boats is founded. The lineup expands.
3D Surface Tech
The EdgeWater design team develops their first boat using 3D surface model technology.
Single-piece infusion is created, a resin infusion technology that is unmatched.
A New Market
New 20 and 24-foot dual console boats are developed. These “crossover” models are an immediate hit and set the standard for an emerging market segment.
Single-piece infusion is used to build all hulls 22 feet and up.
Factory is expanded to 22,000 square feet as well as our workforce.
Crossover Model Created
The new 230CX is released and is reviewed as the “SUV of salt water,” by Boating Magazine.
The future is coming. The 325CC and 285CC will be released.
