The owners of Chaser Yachts have been building and marketing Sportfishingyachts since 1987 under the brand name Garlington Landeweer. In addition, they are themselves very experienced yachtsmen who have integrated all their experience and knowledge into the new concept during its development. Their stated aim was to develop a large innovative high performance platform that performs well on all fronts and provides an answer to the ever-increasing individualisation expected in the market.
Garlington Landeweer Marine Inc.
In the early 1980’s, Richard Garlington was not a fan of the boats available so he decided to construct his own. By 1987, The Landeweer family noticed the opportunity of a successful company in building high quality, fast, custom convertible fishing boats. At that point, the Landeweer family decided to purchase Garlington Marine which was located in Stuart, Florida. Before the transaction, Garlington was already an established builder with a high reputation in building custom sportfishing yachts. The Landeweer plan was to take the Garlington brand to the next level. Soon after the change of ownership, the new Garlington Landeweer brand switched from cold-molded wood construction to molded fiberglass construction.
Garlington Landeweer prides itself on emphasizing the simple nature of a top-notch sport fishing boat. They focus on building boats with an ultra-clean low profile look and a simplistic design with high running speed and logically placed fishing amenities to ensure an easily functional sport fishing boat. In the Garlington Landeweer brand, nothing necessarily jumps off of the page at you but each delivered boat has a complete fishing package that has brought respect to the company from all around the world.
