In 1975, Mark Hauptner built his first 31' center console. Forty years later, the company he founded – Ocean Master – celebrates its history and achievements as it moves into the future.
Hauptner didn't back down when people scoffed at the idea of a large, overbuilt, outboard-powered center console. When the 31 CC hit the water, it changed how the marine industry would view open sportfish boats.
Ocean Master continues its tradition of innovation and use of advanced technologies to produce seaworthy semi-custom boats of power, speed and fishability.
Recently, the company moved its headquarters to a larger, more efficient location in Stuart, Fla. The additional space will accommodate the company's long-term strategy to expand its line into larger models.
"I was proud of that first boat I built and still am today," said Hauptner. "But when looking at what we produce today, and the positive feedback we receive from our customers, I know Ocean Master is moving in the right direction."
