Nautic Global Group was formed in 2005 through a merger of Godfrey Marine and the Rinker Boat Company. Both of these formerly family-owned businesses had rich boat-building heritages that were continued to be honored and celebrated by focusing on quality, value and professionalism.

From 2005 to 2015 the company, from their manufacturing facilities in Elkhart, IN and Syracuse, IN, proudly built industry leading products including Hurricane deck boats, Godfrey pontoon boats (Sanpan, Aqua Patio and Sweetwater brands) Rinker Express Cruisers and Captiva Sport Boats, Polar Kraft aluminum fishing boats, and Parti Kraft pontoon boats.

On September 21, 2015, Nautic Global Group and Bennington Marine announced that the companies had signed a definitive acquisition agreement whereby Bennington Marine would acquire all of the brands and certain assets and liabilities of Nautic Global Group. The acquisition by Bennington Marine was completed on October 2, 2015.

As of October 3, 2015 Nautic Global Group is no longer in the business of manufacturing and selling recreational boats and all employees were transitioned to the acquiring company. To contact Nautic Global Group please refer to Contact Us.
