Nearly half a century since the first hull was launched, the name Jarvis Newman remains synonymous with beautiful Downeast yachts. Gorgeous as much for their sensual lines as they are for their rough weather performance, Jarvis Newman yachts are truly timeless. In this era of refinement and pragmatism, they are perhaps more relevant now than ever.
High tech 3D computer modeling. Lightweight, incredibly strong vacuum-bagged construction. Multi-directional, high-strength fiberglass laminates. UV and blister resistant resins. Advanced chemical adhesives. Honeycomb-cored interior joinery. Clean, quiet, common rail diesel engines. Electronic engine controls. All the comfort and convenience of home. A lot of changes have taken place since the first Jarvis Newman yacht was launched so many years ago. So... What hasn't changed?

"I have built my reputation on time-proven Downeast hulls. Other builders have attempted to match our hulls' perform- ance. Some have come close, but nothing performs quite like a Jarvis Newman hull."
- Jarvis Newman
Jarvis Newman's thoughts turned to powerboats around the same time that fiberglass boatbuilding was gaining momentum. Inspired by the likes of Raymond Bunker and Ralph Ellis, builders of the renowned Bunker & Ellis lobster yachts, Newman saw promise in the future of fiberglass Downeast motorboats.
Newman commissioned noted Downeast yacht designer Royal Lowell to create a series of motor yachts for both commercial and recreational use. Fishermen and cruising enthusiasts alike lauded the yachts for their graceful lines, sound construction and sea kindly nature.
Newman reaped great success from his foray into building comp- osite Downeast powerboats. By the close of the 20th century, he had built a great many yachts, each of them uniquely crafted to suit his customers' needs... Each of them a little piece of the Jarvis Newman legend.
"We're very proud to be carrying on the torch for the renowned Jarvis Newman lineage. His yachts have truly stood the test of time and never cease to meet the demands of the modern boater."
