Caravelle Powerboats was recently given the Made in USA Certified Seal of Certification by a third-party certifier.

The company, which is owned by Sak Marine Co., said it is the first U.S. boatbuilder to get the certification.

“A lot of people claim to be made in U.S.A., but can't back it up. Every boat we make is certified Made in U.S.A. That's something we here at Caravelle, located in Americus, Ga., are very proud to say,” Caravelle president Eugene Sak said in a statement.

“In the last 100 years the United States has dominated as the world’s leader in the marine industry. Our country is known the world over as having undisputed quality, workmanship, design and production when it comes to boats,” Julie Reiser, Made in USA Certified’s president and co-founder, said in a statement. “This is one industry that remains largely owned by the United States and it is one we should strive fiercely to protect.”
