Aquasport History Project – all hands on deck!

ClassicAquasport. com is initiating an effort to document Aquasport boats and their unique history in small boat manufacturing and fishing. Aquasport was founded in 1967 and then was taken over by Genmar in 1988. Unfortunately, the takeover was preceded by tumultuous times at Aquasport and Genmar has very little material related to Aquasport prior to 1988.
Research will include any original Aquasport documentation that can be obtained, either from Aquasport directly or, more likely, from Aquasport owners and enthusiasts; back issues of boating magazines that published at that time, as well as back issues of Florida newspapers that may have published stories on Aquasport (originally located in Hialeah). Personal contacts with former Aquasport employees, dealers, etc. will also be key. The objective is a clear history of the company and complete technical information on all of the boat models built by Aquasport during the period 1967-1988. The results will be published on the site as a work in progress and user input will be welcome, in fact essential.
Anyone with knowledge or leads about Aquasport and/or classic Aquasport boats (particularly copies of printed material) is requested to contact Steve Dembner ( Thanks!
