Connor Marine Engineering Inc

  Connor Marine Engineering was founded by John Connor in 1985 as a specialist in custom marine hardware and preparation of custom performance and racing boats.  In 1990, it's headquarters were moved from California to Fort Lauderdale, Fl, the hub of large powerboats.  One of their most recognized projects has been the Gentry Transatlantic Challenge, which resulted in setting the world record of 62 hours 7 minutes for crossing the Atlantic from New York to England.    

  Connor Marine then re-designed this ocean racer into a luxury yacht designed for personal use, a very complex task.  The re-fit was so successful that Showboat Magazine nominated Gentry Eagle for top honors.  Even with the extra weight of luxury accomodations, she was still able to hit 73 m.p.h.

   The history of Connor Marine features involvement in many of the boating industry's major successes.  John Connor, the company's founder, has participated with manufacturers in developing successful hull designs throughout his carreer.  He was an integral part in the development of offshore tunnel hulls and surface drives.  Connor Marine's model testing projects have ranged from megayachts through race boats and performance yachts down to inflatable boats.

  Why utilize Connor Marine?  The answer is simple - it takes the most qualified talent to produce the greatest products.  Connor Marine offers a combination of abilities that are rarely found under one roof.
