In 1904 Thompson Bros. Boat Manufacturing Co. made its first home in the small, northern town of Peshtigo, Wisconsin starting the legacy of a family boat-building business. Always thinking big and confident in the craft and durability they brought to the boat industry, the second generation of Thompson's started building wood lapstrake outboard cabin cruisers in Oconto, Wisconsin in the early 1950s.In 1965 wood boats were replaced with fiberglass as the new technology was wreaking havoc with the wood boat business. In 1980 the fiberglass product line of Mirro Marine Division (Cruisers) was sold to T.J. Bogard (the former Predisent of Mirro Marine Division) and T.A. Lisle (formerly of Eaton Corporation)So in 1993 Stock's KC International Inc. purchased the company and changed the name to Cruisers Yachts. In 2015, Cruisers Yachts unveiled its largest yacht by introducing the 60 Cantius.
