Marscot Boats

Palmer Scott & Co., Inc.

New Bedford, Massachusetts

This innovative company began building wood sailboats in the 1930's and expanded to include making fiberglass boats in the 1950's. Their fiberglass boats were large, sea-going boats for the near-shore fisherman or recreationist. This puts the company among the first fiberglass boat builders.

Later on, Marscot Plastics appears as a separate division within the company. Palmer Scott & Co. later merged with Beetle Boats to form American Boat Building Corp. and finally with O'Day and Associates. More information is available at the Dolphin 24 sailboat website:
