Warbird Marine Holdings
Business Type: Boat Builder

Warbird Marine Holdings, parent company to Invincible Boat Co. in the US, has acquired Yellowfin Yachts. Florida-based Yellowfin will be a separately managed sister company to Invincible, which Warbird acquired in 2019.

This latest acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, means that Warbird Marine Holdings, formed by EagleTree Capital to invest in category-leading boatbuilders and managed by industry veteran John Dorton, is now the largest and best capitalised designer and builder of custom offshore fishing boats.

Warbird’s CEO Mr Dorton commented:

Wylie Nagler founded Yellowfin in 1998 and, in the 23 years since, the company has established itself as one of the most recognised brands in the premium centre console segment.

Mr Nagler said of the acquisition:

Warbird will invest in Yellowfin’s facilities, people, and new product development, whilst Yellowfin and Invincible will continue to be managed independently.

Mr Dorton continued:
