This family operated company has made steady contributions to recreational boating since it produced its first two models (19-footers) back in 1986. In the 26 years that have passed, Monterey has become one of the larger independently owned boat manufacturers in the U.S. Based in Williston, Florida, it produces a range of family-friendly sport boats, cruisers and sport yachts sized from 18 to 40 feet. Monterey models are known for their contemporary styling and reliable construction, and the builder has a solid reputation for customer service. Monterey received Marine Industry Customer Satisfaction Awards from the National Marine Manufacturers Association for five consecutive years. In addition, the builder’s lifetime limited warranty for hulls and decks is one of the most competitive guarantees in the industry.
