Cruisers Yachts For Sale
Cruisers, Inc. began operations in 1953 and became known around the western Great Lakes for its wood lapstrake runabouts and cruisers. By 1961, 300 employees worked at Cruiser’s Oconto, WI, facility during peak season. The company began the transition to fiberglass production in 1965 and wooden boats were eliminated from the line by the end of 1966. In 1972 Cruisers was purchased by Mirro Marine. In 1982 Cruisers was sold to private interests, and in 1993 the company was purchased by its current owner, KCS International. Cruisers endured its share of financial difficulties in the early 1990s thanks to the downturn in the U.S. economy and the ill-fated 10 percent luxury tax of 1991–93. By the mid 1990s Cruisers returned to full production with a series of all-new family cruiser and motor yacht models as well as an expanded network of dealers. Cruisers Yachts has long been recognized by marine industry professionals for producing affordably priced, well-engineered motoryachts and family cruisers.
