About Glastron

The history of the company

The history of the Glastron shipyard and its founder Bob Hammond can be attributed to the classic path to the American«Dream. It started when Bob worked for the Douglas Aircraft Company in the laminating shop. After studying production technology in detail, he decided to leave the aviation industry and found a job at the Lone Star shipyard, which produced dural boats for fishing. Hammond spent all his free time building his own five-meter fiberglass boat in a rented garage.

The presented lightweight glider impressed the sponsors, which helped to raise initial capital of $25,000. With this money, a new Glastron shipyard was opened in 1956. The company quickly gained momentum: after only three months, the shipyard had built and sold 24 boats.

The boats of the yard have in many ways become the benchmark for other manufacturers.

The company offered stylish boats, similar to sports cars of the time and fishing Deck Boats. One day editor Randy Vance of the famous Boating Life, said:

«Glastron is a Ferrari in the world of boats. If you drive one of them, you're attracting attention.

In the 90's the company was sold to Genmar holding, and after the bankruptcy of the latter in 2010 was transferred to PBH Marine Group.

Status

Today, Glastron is part of the Beneteau Group and continues its work.

Glastron's manufacturing facilities are located in a factory in Cadillac, Michigan. The factory also gathers other American brands owned by Beneteau, such as Four Winns and Scarab.

The Surf & Fish line is designed specifically for connoisseurs of the two main water activities - wakeboarding and fishing, this is the Fish & Ski category boats.
