In the year 1921, the family Beetle of New Bedford used the techniques they perfected building, whaling ships and created the Beetle Cat.
The owner of Beetle Inc. Bill Womack said “If one gets the opportunity of seeing the boat of beetle on the water, then it cannot be overlooked, the boat has such a beauty.”
Womack along with his craftsmen build the Beetle Cat of 12-foot size out of wood, using the same mold, patterns and techniques as their ancestors used to do decades ago. Womack purchased the company in the year 2003, and moved the workshop where boats were made to Wareham.
