Edgewater Boats History
Bob Dougherty was the director of engineering at Boston Whaler for years when, in 1992, he decided to take the plunge and build boats his way – strong, safe, reliable and luxurious. His formula: use experienced craftsmen, the best and latest technologies, and out-of-the-boat thinking. His development of SPI (Single- Piece Infusion) hull construction and advanced structural designs for center and dual consoles has earned EdgeWater Boats the reputation of being unsinkable.
Today, EdgeWater boats for sale include the best center consoles, crossover (dual) consoles and yachts ranging from 15 to 37 feet on the water.
Single Piece Infusion Construction
Single Piece Infusion Construction or SPI, is when vinylester resin is vacuum-infused into a grid structure (that is made of fiberglass and high density composites) and the laminate of the hull simultaneously. The resin that is located in the grid structure binds with the resin in the laminate and forms one single very solid piece. Single piece infusion construction then creates a boat made of one large piece.
In a closed-mold vacuum infusion process, vinylester resin is chemically bonded so that the hull is bonded with composite structural beams that creates one unit.
The end result is simply a better, safer boat that is focused on safety so that users can make the most out of being on the water. Close-mold vacuum infusion is ideal for molding very large structures.
As proprietary technology to EdgeWater Boats, the Single piece infusion construction technique makes the company truly stand out a technology-led shipyard.
Here are 12 reasons why EdgeWater Boats are still going strong almost three decades later:
- 100 percent composite materials (no wood coring, stringers)
- Built to custom specs so every model is unique
- Closed-cell foam for maximum buoyancy
- Completely self-bailing
- Cutting-edge North Sails technology
- Easy to operate and fuel-efficient
- Extra thick (3/8”) Lexan windshields
- Highest grade 316L stainless steel deck hardware
- Perma-Grid high-density foam structural system
- Proprietary Single Piece Infusion (SPI) system

The boats are popular with serious anglers, boating families and other water sports enthusiasts. Custom EdgeWater boats are so tough and reliable they are also used for law enforcement, military and commercial applications.
