1931 Stephens Brothers 43
- Stock #070760 -
Stephens Brothers Boat Builders and Designers began in the back yard of brothers Theodore (Thod, 1882-1933) and Robert (Roy, 1884-1953) Stephens. Their boat building firm in Stockton, California operated from 1902 to 1987. Over the years the company became famous for its elegantly designed pleasure craft, including sailboats, speedboats, cruisers and private yachts. Stephens Bros. also built many vessels for the U.S. military, especially during World War II.
The company was economically successful even during the Great Depression. East coast buyers were taking an interest in Stephens Bros'. new gasoline powered semi-stock cruisers that were smaller and more affordable than the previously built steam yachts.
Thod Stephens died in 1933, and Roy Stephens retired at the end of World War II. He turned the company over to his nephews, Theo, Barre and Dick Stephens. Stephens Bros. continued making semi-stock cruisers with their generic outside hulls and custom designed interiors. In the wake of the postwar economic boom, orders for more custom yachts increased.
Today, Stephens Bros. boats are highly prized as collectors' items. Stephens Bros. boat owners meet every year at the Stephens Rendezvous, organized by the Northern California Fleet of the Classic Yacht Association, to show off these beautiful vessels.
