Ventnor Boat Works, West Atlantic City NJ

Most recent update: November 29, 2016.


Ventnor Boat Works was started in 1902 by Emil A. Apel and developed a major reputation for the construction of high-speed boats - including Malcolm Campbell's Bluebird and other world record holders.  It moved to a larger facility, in West Atlantic City, for WWII and returned to the commercial market after the war, but gradually lost market share and closed in 1968.  If anyone can tell me where exactly the yards were located, or can add to the table below, please e-mail your info to me at timcolton@aol.com
