The NorthCoast Story:

Jose C. DaPonte, the President and Owner of C&C Marine, has dedicated his life to crafting exceptional boats since the early 1970s. A leading figure in composite boat building and tool making, Joe’s expertise is deeply rooted in his Portuguese heritage and a profound love for the ocean. His family is a vital part of the business, working alongside him to enhance boat quality daily. In the summer, the DaPonte family enjoys fishing on the very boats they meticulously build.

Focused on creating vessels that are rugged, versatile, and prioritize fishing, Joe strategically positioned the production facility in Bristol, Rhode Island, a hub for boat building in New England. This location allows for testing and commissioning new models, as well as training dealers and boat owners in the picturesque surroundings of Narragansett Bay, near the Herreschoff Marine Museum and the historic town of Newport. This area also provides easy access to the superb fishing grounds of Rhode Island Sound.

NorthCoast Boats, a division of C&C Marine and C&C Fiberglass, Inc., stands as a testament to the company’s commitment to high-quality fishing and recreational boats. The nineties saw C&C Marine as the manufacturing force behind Dick Lema’s designs. In 2000, seizing an opportunity, Joe acquired the NorthCoast Boats brand name and hull molds, drawn to the brand’s robust lines and superior performance. Under Joe’s stewardship, NorthCoast Boats continues to honor its pledge to construct top-tier fishing boats, used and tested by the builders themselves, ensuring unparalleled quality for their customers.

Notably, C&C Marine is also trusted by J-Boats and other prestigious brands for producing molded hulls and decks for select high-end models, consistently delivering excellence with each build.
