Company Profile

The Beetle Cat Boat is a twelve-foot, gaff-rigged wooden catboat designed by John Beetle in 1921 and originally built by the Beetle family of New Bedford, MA, famous for their whaleboats. To date, over 3,500 of these boats have been built, all of wood, and they are still being built in South Dartmouth, MA at Beetle, Inc. which is owned and operated by Charlie York who purchased the rights to the Beetle from long-time builder Concordia Company.
