About Our Company
The Limestone Boat Company Limited – the owner and builder of heritage brands Limestone®, Aquasport and Boca Bay – is headquartered in Collingwood, Ontario. We manufacture our brand models in our own 145,000 sq. ft facility located in White Bluff, Tennessee. Our vast, skilled labor force as well as our strategic dealer partnerships throughout the United States and Canadian Great Lakes region are the backbone of our company.
We began with a vision to be a prominent leader in the marine industry, starting our journey by purchasing the design and production rights to the Limestone® Boats brand. The Limestone® brand has a 35-year history as a heritage company renowned for its timeless design, big water performance, quality manufacturing and durability. These models were historically produced in Canada, but we shifted production stateside to increase our capacity as well distribution capabilities to our growing dealer network. This facility, owned by Ebbtide Holdings, was also producing models for the heritage brand Aquasport Boats as well as Boca Bay Boats. Shortly after production initiated for Limestone®, we purchased Ebbtide Holdings LLC, including the manufacturing facility, and rights to the historic & renowned Aquasport & Boca Bay brands.
Now, armed with complete control of our manufacturing of these heritage brands in three sought after marine market segments, our vision continues with a primary goal in 2021 to make strategic investments in product, facilities, process, people and technology thus positioning the Company to meet and possibly exceed its 2022 forecast of 520 boats manufactured and sold in the calendar year. Our Limestone Boat Company team is led by a passionate team of elite marine industry veterans encompassing more than 100 years of combined experience in manufacturing, finance, design, marketing and customer-service. With a growing number of customers looking to spend time out on the water, we are investing in innovation, design and production across all of our brands so that we can continue to exceed the expectations for those customers.
We are evolving and expanded our product lines to appeal to both recreational and commercial, specifically focusing on the industry shift in consumer preference to outboard powerboats in the 20’-30’ salt & fresh water family cruising market, as well as salt water coastal & bay boat markets. And our growth in providing outboard-powered models will be further enhanced with our recent partnership with Vision Marine Technologies to produce cutting edge, big water performers with reliable EV (electric-powered) outboard-powered boats as additional offerings to our customers.
Our goal moving forward is to be one of North America’s top boatbuilding companies in numerous categories including number of units produced annually, market capitalization, EV leadership, customer and employee satisfaction, and EBITDA. Furthermore, creating a place people want to work, where they believe in the brand models they are crafting, and knowing our commitment to human values and diversity are, and will always be, instrumental to all of our success.
