Gibson Boats

Published in the January 2012 Issue January 2012

GibsonFor over 40 years, Gibson Boats has produced a hybrid cross between a houseboat and a cabin cruiser. The Gibson boat offers cruiser-like performance with houseboat-like amenities and ranges from 44 to 59 feet in length. Gibsons can be found literally all over the world. All Gibson boats are saltwater ready, which gives the Gibson owner thousands of miles of Intracoastal waterway to explore with its fiberglass modified V-hull. After Gibson's previous facility was destroyed in a tornado in early spring of 2006, a new manufacturing facility was built in Portland, Tenn.

Gibson uses an extensive hand-laid process when building all of its hulls. Many staff members have been building boats for over 25 years. This level of experience contributes to the quality and tradition known as Gibson Boats.

2011 Recap:

Last year Gibson Boats continued to explore new cost-effective, innovative and environmentally-friendly ways to build new boats and is currently in place to pass those savings and efforts on to its customers.
