Ackerman Boat, Newport Beach CA

Most recent update: January 17, 2012.


Ackerman Boat Company was started in 1943 by Clarence Ackerman.  It was located on Lido Island, at a time when Lido Island was virgin ground.  Consolidated Steel bought it in 1943 and converted it into a boat repair yard, but sold it again in 1947.  It then continued as Ackerman Boat Works until quite recently.  See it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
