Trojan Yachts was (1949–present) a US manufacturer of motorboats, with offices and production facilities in Lancaster Pennsylvania, Elkton Maryland and Niagara-on-the-Lake Ontario Canada.
In 1949 James R. "Jim" McQueen and Harper Hull purchased the Cottrell-Spoore Boatworks of Troy, New York. The company was named "The Trojan Boat Company" and moved the business to York, Pennsylvania. Soon they moved to Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Growth in sales after the Korean War necessitated additional facilities at Elkton, Maryland, and Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada. Trojan by 1968 had become the one of the largest producer of inboard motor boats in the world, employing over 700 people, most on their 26-acre site in a 142,000 square foot factory and adjacent truck depot at 167 Greenfield Road, Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In 1966 Trojan acquired the Shepherd Boat Company, Canada, manufacturer of up to 50-foot wooden motor yachts.
Originally all of the boats were built of wood. Transition to fiberglass hulls forced the company to become affiliated with Whittaker Marine Group, listed on the NYSE, which ultimately included Bertram Yacht, Trojan Yachts, Riva, Desco Marine, Kettenburg, Balboa Marine, and Coronado Yachts. Total sales of the Whittaker Marine Group reached between $250 and $350 Million in the early 70's.
The Trojan Yacht Company of Lancaster, Pennsylvania ended production in 1992. Miramar Marine Columbia Yachts, later Genmar Holdings, purchased the Trojan Boat brand name and assets.
