A Boat That Didnt
Remember this was 1974. At that time the idea of a 31 foot outboard powered center console fishing boat was considered foolish by the established marine industry.
"Heck, We'll Build It!"
The Large Center Console is Born
The 31 changed the concept of outboards in the marine industry in terms of power, speed, and fishability. And of course that first boat continues to chase fish on the Palm Beach coast to this very day.
100% Owned by Mark Hauptner
Ocean Master is still 100% owned and run on a day-to-day basis by its founder, Mark Hauptner. Mark works in the factory every day and continues to oversee each Ocean Master produced. Customers are often shocked to call the factory asking for information or a brochure only to find themselves on the line with Mark.
Built the Right Way
There is no corporate pressure to produce cheap, mass market boats. There is only a fanatical obsession with building boats the right way for a limited number of customers. Boats that are designed and built for offshore conditions as they exist in the real world - not magazine articles.

which all others are judged.
