No I donít think I mean the US guys- They are powerboats are they not - walkaround / fast fisher type boats? There is (or was) a range of Parker yachts - small weekender types with lifting keels.

I think the yachts are made by the same company and yes they make a range of powerboats but have nothing to do with us nor we with them

No there is not as the UK company of which I am the Director is just a trading company. The UK company was founded in 1884, incorporated in 1940 and under present ownership since 1987. Parker Boats are sold via dealers and my office looks after the ribs ie UK sales and worldwide and other none rib related products which we buy in the UK and re-sell.
I have appointed Amanzi Marine Services as the dealer for Parker Ribs and their assistance is fully appreciated .

Extremely popular center console fishing boats here in the warmer parts of the United States.

Parker Boats

RE : Factory

The CNC tooling is definitely impressive.

I prefer robot arms though...more versatile.

I was thinking of these ones: Parker and Seal Sailing Association - but looks like they are no longer in business.
