How It All Began
We are very excited to announce the onset of a new chapter in pilothouse boats in the Pacific Northwest. Northwest Marine Industries has taken over as a manufacturing entity with strong history. At the helm of our operation is Ron Wright, who established the Sea Sport line of boats over 30 years ago with his brother David Wright and nephew David A. Wright. The family business dates back to 1955 when Sportsman Boats was located in Fairhaven and Ron and David’s father Frank was the owner. Later the business moved to its Guide Meridian location in 1977 where the company began to produce pilothouse style boats. After a hiatus from the boating industry, Ron has decided to return as the head of Northwest Marine Industries. Ron brings his expertise in creating quality boats along with his stellar reputation as an up front and honest businessman. Ron has partnered with his son Mark Wright, son-in-law Ryan Binning and our new production manager Greg Little. This distinguished team of four is committed to produce and distribute the highest quality products for boaters all across the world.
SeaSport boats are known in the industry as one of the most versatile and rugged boats available. At Northwest Marine Industries, we are also proud to announce that we will be building all models of the C-Dory, Osprey, Tomcat, and Skagit Orca lines. Our employees have a long history with these boats and are prepared and motivated to construct them all with superior and unparalleled craftsmanship.
Northwest Marine Industries has established an extremely strong dealer network by building relationships through trust and professionalism. All boats ordered are considered “Custom” and great care is taken in the details. Our dealers share our same values and are an extension of the NMI family.
Northwest Marine Industries is a new company with old roots. We are intent upon changing the boating landscape of the Pacific Northwest and around the world. All of our boats have familiar names, lines, and hulls, but our hope is to continue to upgrade finish and options according to desires of our customers. Northwest Marine Industries is a family business and customer driven, and we intend on continuing our industry leading marks for customer service.
