Merritt Yachts

Merritt Boats has a rich history out of Pompano Beach, Florida dating back to 1948. This is a boat brand that signifies growth in the South Florida sportfish industry. Many changes have occurred since the boat yard was started in 1948. While the Merritt 37 footers have grown to include yachts up to 86 feet, with many luxurious enhancements, the small Mom & Pop ambiance of the boat yard has basically remained the same. As a family-owned and operated boat yard, Merritt maintains a very high quality standard with complete control from conception to fabrication to installation and final delivery.
