Campbell Boat Company (1937-1953): In 1937, Kenneth Campbell came to Holland from the east coast to form the Campbell Boat Company. Campbell designed and oversaw the construction of large sailing yachts, small sailboats, and wooden powerboats for private owners and U.S. military contracts. In 1953 the Cambell yard was rented then purchased by the Beacon Boat Company, headed by Orville Munkwitz.
