Hello. Ty for making this page and for allowing me to join.
Just browsing and ra. Across it. Mainly I was searching and a question came up in regards to
Fred Claxton, Celebrity Boats and Crownline Boats and the who and what of them
So Fred started Celebrity Boats. Been running since the ups.
He sold and started Crownline Boats. In the meantime Jimmy Faulks
started Mariah Boats.
At Mariah we but 25 boats a day. From 180 bowriders to 265 buddies.
Crownline was using the old Marktwain Boats factory for awhile.
Celebrity sold to a few companies. Juniper to be the last owner before BRP
I've calculated I've roughly made about 100,000 boats in my career.
I started when I was 21 years old. I'm 50 now.
I've had the pleasure of making boats for Larry Bird, Mickey Mantle, Johnny Cash and mario Andretti.
I helped make the last Andretti boat at Celebrity Boats.
I own my own shop In Benton Illinois. It's called
The Cazy Mule
