Discover the Legacy of Strength, Simplicity, and Seaworthiness: Parker’s Unmatched Boat Lineup
Since its inception in 1969, the Parker brand has been synonymous with qualities that boaters hold dear: Strength, Simplicity, and Seaworthiness. Nestled in the heart of Beaufort, North Carolina, along the coastal Outer Banks, Parker has been crafting exceptional center consoles and sport cabins that have captured the hearts of boat owners, adventurers, and recreational enthusiasts around the world.
Tradition: A Foundation Built to Last
Parker’s journey began in a place where tradition runs deep. The coastal Outer Banks of Beaufort, North Carolina, has a legacy of over 200 years in hand-crafted, custom boat building. It’s an area that knows the demands of the sea intimately, earning it the moniker “The Graveyard of Atlantic.” Within this challenging environment, Parker was born, setting its foundation on the enduring values of tradition, craftsmanship, and seaworthiness.
Strength: Forging Ahead with Confidence
The significance of strength cannot be understated when it comes to Parker boats. From its early days, Parker embraced time-tested techniques in lamination, robust stainless-steel hardware, and reinforced hull construction. These elements weren’t just about creating boats that could take you where you wanted to go, but about creating vessels that could withstand the tests of time, offering a lifetime of rugged fish-ability and enjoyment.
Simplicity: A Philosophy of Excellence
Linwood Parker, the founder of Parker, brought a simple philosophy to the forefront of the brand’s ethos. He understood the value of honesty, hard work, and doing things right. These values are reflected in every boat that bears the Parker name, emphasizing straightforward design, lasting value, and a commitment to providing boat enthusiasts with vessels that prioritize functionality and ease of use.
Seaworthiness: Born from Necessity
The coastal waters of Beaufort, North Carolina, are not forgiving, and Parker’s boats have been built to meet this challenge head-on. Born out of necessity and honed through years of experience, Parker boats are designed to be seaworthy, versatile, and reliable. This commitment to seaworthiness is a testament to Linwood Parker’s background as a commercial fisherman and builder of custom commercial boats.
Crafting Excellence: From Past to Present
Parker’s dedication to excellence continues to shine through its modern 225,000-square-foot production facility, one that rivals the best in the industry. From initial design and prototyping to construction, assembly, testing, and shipping, every step of the boat-building process is meticulously executed in-house. The finest roll stocks and resins are used in hand-laid construction, and the deck hardware is secured with stainless steel bolts. This attention to detail is the hallmark of every Parker boat, a dedication to quality that’s been preserved through generations.
A Part of the Correct Craft Family
In 2019, Parker became a proud member of the Correct Craft family. This strategic move aligned Parker with a company that values culture and places emphasis on people, performance, and philanthropy. The integration into this family has only reinforced Parker’s commitment to delivering excellence and value to its customers.
