Marinette Production History

Postby MetalHead » Tue Sep 05, 2017 5:20 am

I wanted to add this here. I posted it on FB, but that always goes into the FB abyss.

1954 to 1991 Big M's have had many versions. Marinette is a "Make" of boat with many models.

1954 to 1961 Falls City Flying Service
1. Spartan Mariner (I think 54 to 56)

2. All Family Cruiser (58 & 59)
3. Marinette (1960)

1961 to 1991 Aluminum Cruisers, Inc. (All called Marinette from here)
1. Sedan (1961 listed one but I have only seen this model from the 70's)
2. Express (1961 to late 80's - Don't know if I've seen any 90 up Express models)
a. Hard Top
b. Flybridge
3. Sea-Crest
a. Catamaran (1962 & 1963)
b House Boat (River Cruiser)
4. Sportsman
a. Hard Top
b. Convertible
c. Flybridge
5. Fisherman
6. Grand Sport
7. Marquis
8. Overnighter (I have never seen one of these - In an early 60's brochure - May have become the Sportsman)
9. Double Cabin (Pre Marquis)

1992 Boating Corporation of America
1. Convertible (34 and 41)
2. Double Cabin (34 and 41)
3. Motor Yacht

I am sure this has lots of holes and maybe some dates are off some, but my research says over 8000 were built over almost 40 years .... pretty good run.
