Mathis Yachts, Camden and Gloucester City NJ

(later John Trumpy & Sons)

Most recent update: November 20, 2015.


Mathis Yacht Building Company was a spin-off from John H. Mathis Company, operating in an adjacent facility at Cooper Point in Camden, just upstream of the Ben Franklin Bridge.  When WWII came, the yachtbuilding operation moved from Cooper Point to Gloucester City, where it was acquired by John Trumpy (who had been its driving force for many years) and renamed John Trumpy & Sons.  After the war Trumpy relocated again, to Annapolis MD.  If anyone can add to the table below, please e-mail timcolton@aol.com.
