About

25 Year History
What is today, was yesterday
During the past two decades, Monterey Boats has established itself as a true frontrunner when it comes to designing, developing, engineering, and building superior boats for the conscientious marine consumer. Much of our success can be attributed to the fact that Monterey is an independently owned and family operated company. This promotes quick reaction to market conditions, efficient decision-making and implementation, as well as a hands-on approach to the process of new product development as well as customer relations. When you purchase a Monterey you are not just a new customer, you are considered to be a new family member.

"You make a great boat! I have a 250CR, and when I upgrade it will be Monterey all the way. When I saw your boats on your web site, I said to myself "what a nice looking boat". When I went to the Boston boat show, I made it a point to visit the Monterey display. I was hooked and I'm not sorry for it. I would like to thank the people at Monterey for the extra care and service that they provided me, when I had questions with my boat. I feel that everyone at Monterey, is committed to customer satisfaction 110%. Thanks for a great response and courtesy but most of all a great boat. "

"I have thoroughly enjoyed the two previous Monterey boats we have owned, and absolutely cannot wait to get our 270 Cruiser out for her maiden voyage ! After seeing first hand how much work goes into the making of these vessels, I am even more impressed than before. It’s reassuring to know that the manufacturer of our boat is as courteous and professional as our local dealer. "

"Thanks for making such a fine product. We shopped for two years and considered many manufacturers. I think we got a lot of features for the money. Every time we use the boat it reinforces our decision. It is the perfect size for us and has all the features we need. It handles well and looks great on the water. Must be great to have a job which brings so much pleasure to so many people! "

"Just wanted to let you know we took delivery of our 340 on April 30th and we were very excited to get it here and in our slip. The weather that weekend wasn’t very nice but it did give us time to get it in our slip and spend the rest of weekend familiarizing ourselves with everything and reading all the literature. This past weekend the weather was much better and we invited our mothers up and cooked them lunch on our dock and took them for an afternoon cruise on the lake for Mothers Day, this made for a wonderful and memorable time. The purchase of our new Monterey was a fun filled, exciting adventure that started about a year ago. We eventually headed to Williston where we toured the plant. Everyone that we have came in contact with during this adventure was very nice and willing to help in any way they could. Businesses do not put a lot of effort into customer service these days and it seems to be getting worse everyday, but everyone we have dealt with at Monterey have gone above and beyond to help when we have needed it. Thank you all for such a wonderful experience."

"I just got my boat out of winter storage. It’s a 2001 24LS and I have never had anything go wrong. Had it serviced, gave it a good cleaning and THE BOAT LOOKS LIKE IT JUST CAME OFF THE SHOW ROOM FLOOR! Thank you for building a great product that lasts and lasts, I fully expect to have it another 14 years. "
- Mike and Lisette
"Hello Monterey, Loving the boat! Went from a 242S YAMAHA to the 2014 288SS Monterey- all I can say is Wow! Every feature is great and solid as a rock! Thanks so much!"

"I can't stop talking about my 214SS, cruising on the Ottawa river (Canada) I received so many compliments. I love it! Mike B., Gatineau, Quebec"

"I just wanted to send a quick note to you guys as I got the new 340 on Wednesday that you all were a part of. It is SWEET !! We have taken it out twice and I am super thrilled with the performance. The roominess is also just unbelievable. A friend of mine that is 6-2" stood up in the cabin today and could not believe it as he says he has to duck a little in most boats that size. I thank you all again as it is just great to have it and be out on it. We are getting a lot of looks as we drive by!! So again, -thanks to all- I am loving it!"
