General Details

The Pacemaker is a Classic Sport fish built for the serious fisherman.

The over sized bow design makes for a durable boat in rough waters that handles well and you end up with the roomy cabin quarters below.

The Pacemaker has a honorable service history and a solid reputation as a builder.

In 1948, John Leek sold his stock in the Egg Harbor Boat Company and struck out on his own to form Pacemaker Yachts.

In early 1949, John and his brother Cecil ran the company and their first boat was a "carvel-planked 29 footer using Jersey cedar on oak frames". They moved up to a 33 footer and then 36 and 40.Pacemaker switched to reinforced fiberglass during the 1970s. Known as the "classic battlewagon" in the sport fishing community,

Pacemaker set the standard for serious anglers. The hulls were designed with sleek lines that can withstand the harshest of conditions. The raised deck reduces the pounding in head seas, but maintains its maneuverability.

Roomy interiors with a well appointed entertainment area and sleeping quarters can accommodate passengers and guests with ease. Pacemaker Yachts have a tradition based on quality and comfortable seating and peppy inboard motors can take any adventurer to exotic locations.
