That was long after the Trojan name was sold to Carver . I had been told Hat built some or some were built at a Hat plant . I could find no real info on it . But this answers the Question or adds to the confusion LOL . Great find !!

On second thought it should be Trojan by Carver/Hat LOL

Thanks

In 1992 Carver brought Trojan basically for the name.

The Trojan company that had made boats from 1952 - 1992 was no more. This is the reason we have all the records, and parts for Trojan’s from 52’ - 92’

Carver came up with there own hulls and a excellent high end line of boats called a Trojan.

There are some similarities between the Trojan International line and the Carver/Trojan boats. Over the years we have found that some of the early Carver/Trojans had some of the switches and some hardware that is the same.

The designer Fulvio DeSimoni who was used by Carver for there new line of Trojan boats was also used by Trojan for the International Boats.

Our knowledge of Carver/Trojans is very limited.
