Every brand has a story. EdgeWater Power Boats’ story just added a new chapter to its long history in the boating world.

EdgeWater Power Boats’ story started in 1992 with a vision from the legendary engineer, Bob Dougherty, that wanted to build boats with integrally stable hulls. This was the foundation of what was to come — Single-Piece Infusion (SPI). EdgeWater pioneered this game-changing boatbuilding process. Beyond the build of the boat, EdgeWater prides itself on the luxury, family mindset that it designs into the bones of every boat.

“With this collaborative partnership, we will set a strong standard for boatbuilding,” says Jennifer Butera, President, and CEO of EdgeWater Power Boats. “Our companies share the same sensibilities geared towards providing sincere commitment to our customers and their families. The Nimbus Group is aimed at growth, and it seems limitless.”
