Our Story

Jarrett Bay Boatworks, a premier builder of custom sport fishing boats, began in 1986 when Randy Ramsey led the construction of a single 52-foot charter boat, the Sensation, in an old tin shed. Since those humble beginnings, Jarrett Bay has constructed & delivered over 90 sportfish boats and serviced tens of thousands of vessels. Our one-of-a-kind custom construction process allows us to finely balance our customers’ needs for fishing performance, fuel efficiency and luxury – all while never sacrificing the legendary Carolina ride. | Why Jarrett Bay »
