Beetle Boat Company

New Bedford, Massachusetts


Being one of the early fiberglass boating companies, Beetle boat company built boats and they were sold at quite the price. The new "plastic" (fiberglass resins) boats were quite expensive.


Palmer Scott & Co. later merged with Beetle Boats to form the American Boat Building Corp. and finally with O'Day and Associates. More information is available at the Dolphin 24 sailboat website: http://www.dolphin24.org/history_Palmer_Scott.html


By 1958, Beetle boats were made for the American Boat Building Corp. by Carolina Fiberglass Products of Wilson, North Carolina.
