In 1909 G.Reid Richardson founded the Richardson Boat Company in North Tonawanda, New York to build high quality boats at a fair price. History has shown that he was quite successful in this undertaking. Over the years many types of boats were produced including not only cruising vessels but sailboats, runabouts, racing boats and military craft during the war years. In the late 1920's standardized models were in production and the highly successful Cruisabout models were introduced. High quality cedar hulls with white oak frames and mahogany cabins, usually powered with Gray Marine engines, were produced in great numbers. The Richardson Boat Company organized "Sailaways" where the owners of newly purchased boats were encouraged to congregate in North Tonawanda and join in a cruise down the Erie Canal to New York City. Sadly, Mr. Richardson passed away in 1937 and his wife Ethel took over management until 1941 when the company was sold to a group of local businessmen. During the second World War pleasure boat production was suspended, the work force expanded, and a great number of different types of military vessels were produced for the Coast Guard, Army, and Navy. After the war the company began building a line of molded plywood boats using new technologies and building techniques that were plagued with problems. After this short lived experiment production returned to the time proven plank on frame construction which resulted in tremendously strong and durable hulls. Competition, labor problems, and the introduction of fiberglass began to take its toll. In 1959 the Richardson Boat Company combined with Colonial Boats to become United Marine, Inc. and later joined with Avro Aircraft to produce larger aluminum hulls. All efforts to regain position failed and on June 1, 1962 the Richardson Boat Company declared bankruptcy. Now, over 40 years later, many Richardsons remain afloat and in use. A number of these vessels, lovingly cared for by their present owners, date back to the 1920's.
