Yellowfin Yachts’ History

Yellowfin Yachts, widely recognized for building some of the best offshore fishing vessels on the market today, has built their impressive reputation in a relatively short amount of time. Yellowfin Yachts’ history begins in 1998, when CEO Wylie Nagler set out to build a fast, top-of-the-line fishing boat that could perform well in rough offshore waters. Bringing to bear experience gained from years of offshore powerboat racing and tournament fishing, Nagler designed the first Yellowfin, a fast, top-shelf 31-foot center console yacht that debuted in 2000. Fourteen years later, Yellowfin Yachts’ line of exceptional semi-custom vessels now includes a militarized 34-foot vessel enhanced for law enforcement officials, a custom 40 super yacht tender, and a fleet of fishing boats that range from a 17-foot technical poling skiff to a 42-foot offshore center console with a top speed of 70 miles per hour.Wylie Nagler originally pursued a career building restaurant chains, but his love of boats soon led to an involvement with an offshore racing team. He started working part time rigging boats, eventually moving on to building flats boats. Applying his fishing and racing background, Nagler soon began redesigning boats, eventually creating his own original designs. He started Back Country Powerboats, introducing his first cutting-edge inshore vessel at the Miami Boat Show in 1993. Nagler’s fledgling company quickly became a success, which lead to its purchase by Champion Boats. As Nagler worked at Champion, he noticed that many of the offshore fishing vessels on the market were merely racing hulls repurposed for the fishing market by adding center consoles. The resulting vessels were fast, but poorly designed, lacking essential fishing equipment such as adequate live wells. He realized that by building a fishing boat first, then making it fast, he could create fishing boats that would meet the needs of professional tournament fishermen and serious anglers. Yellowfin Yachts was born, with a commitment to making the best offshore fishing vessels available. Yellowfin’s vessels are designed, created, and built entirely on site, using only the best materials. 2007 Center Console 34’ Yellowfin for saleYellowfin sells their vessels on-site, rather than using a dealer, which allows them to offer a wide range of options that customers can choose from to create the semi-customized vessels of their dreams.
