About Us

Ron Cooper has been building commercial catamarans since 1984.  He and his crew have built over 130 commercial catamarans that operate in numerous locations around the world, from Saipan to Saudi Arabia, and throughout the Caribbean and the United States.  Prior to entering the boat building business, Ron operated his own charter business for 8 years.  This experience gives him the perspective required to assess the needs of each owner including the U.S.C.G. certification requirements, vessel operating conditions and maintenance needs. 

Each Cooper Marine Catamaran is designed specifically to the individual operator’s needs - deck layouts, power packages and accessories are all custom designed.  Norm Swain, Cooper Marine’s yard manager, has worked with Ron for over 15 years.   Ron and Norm work closely with each customer before and during the construction process to ensure that the completed vessel will meet the owner’s needs and meet his or her expectations.

Catamaran Construction

Our vessels are all constructed to meet or exceed United States Coast Guard structural requirements. The catamarans are a one piece molded hull and a one piece molded deck. We use the best materials available to give you a strong, durable low maintenance vessel. Out of 135 vessels built since 1984, all but one, lost to a hurricane, are still working.

These pictures will help you see how well these vessels are built.
