Founded in 1949 by Jim McQueen and Harper Hull in York, Pennsylvania, The Trojan Boat Company began its humble operations in a dairy barn that was converted for factory use in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, where the workforce was mostly Amish. Soon after, they moved to a factory in Lancaster, and within 2 years, the company was producing around 20 boats per week. Over the next several decades, they built tens of thousands of all-wood family cruisers from 25 (7.6m) to 54 feet (16.4m), making Trojan yachts the world’s second largest producer of inboard wooden boats.
By 1968, the facilities had spread to three locations – Lancaster, PA, Elkton, Maryland, and Niagara on the Lake in Ontario Canada; the company had become the largest manufacturer of inboard boat builders in the world, constructing a complete line of wooden boats. The switch to fiberglass came in 1969. Technology in boat building began to change over to fiberglass. Trojan was slow to follow the new trend and by that time, they didn’t have the financing for new molds and were bought out by the Whittaker Corporation. Under the new company, Trojan produced a new line of fiberglass boats, but was eventually bought out again, and unfortunately stopped production in 1992. Trojan Yachts’ exceptionally well- built production-line hulls are seaworthy, reliable and inexpensive to own and operate. Scroll below to search all yacht MLS listings of Trojan Yachts.
