What began in 1904 as Thompson Bros. Boat Manufacturing Company in northern Wisconsin, is now a builder of fine cruiser yachts. By the early 1950s, the family owned business was building 14 (4.2m) and 16ft (4.8m) wood lapstrake outboard cabin cruisers, and eventually, the well-known Cruisers that exist today debuted in their first catalog in 1956. About a decade later, they started building with fiberglass, which at the time was controversial as it was a great departure from the typical wood that was employed for boat building. The company was sold and for the first time, someone other than the Thompson family was running the company. Later in 1993, the company was sold again and renamed to Cruisers Yachts. The company continued to thrive, and eventually in 2011, it launched the 48 Cantius – a highly popular model, which was later expanded to the 60 Cantius, and later, the 60 Fly.
