    All American Marine joins Bryton Marine Group

    All American Marine (AAM) owner, Matt Mullett has completed the private sale to family-owned Bryton Marine Group

    AAM, located in Bellingham, WA. is at the forefront of aluminum vessel design and manufacturing. The company has built a sterling reputation for building technologically enhanced designs with characteristics that ensure high-speed travel, industry-leading fuel efficiency, and customization to fit operators’ needs.

    “AAM is a formidable addition to our group; they are a great cultural fit with a highly talented team. Their keen focus on technological integration and commitment to shaping the future of hybrid-electric and hydrogen vessel implementation is inspiring.”- Byron Bolton, Bryton CEO.

    All American Marine continues to forge new frontiers in vessel construction. From their ultra-low wake hydrofoil-assisted catamarans to some of the countries’ first hybrid-electric USCG certified subchapter T and K Boats, they are blazing a trail in the industry. As they complete the final touches on the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell powered electric passenger vessel they are now helping us all look forward to the possibility of a zero-carbon future.

    “Over the years, Byron and I have gained a mutual respect while building solid companies with similar values and focus on culture. I wouldn’t turn the ownership of my business over to just anyone. I am convinced that with this transition, AAM is well-positioned to continue building state-of-the-art boats for our valued customers, to be a place for our highly-talented employees to thrive, and to be a significant asset to the Bellingham / Whatcom County community.” – Matt Mullett, AAM Owner & CEO.

    Bryton has strong capital resources, a far-reaching distribution network, efficient production, and increasingly advanced information systems.  Bryton’s buying power and established systems will enable All American Marine to continue to pioneer cutting-edge marine solutions while operating as a standalone business within the group.

    “Matt Mullett and I have fostered a relationship based on common ground and experience. He has built a great company, which now complements our group. Bryton now offers North America’s most comprehensive commercial aluminum vessel portfolio from 30’ to 150,’’ adds Byron Bolton.

    All American Marine will continue to operate in Bellingham, WA. Byron Bolton assumes the role of CEO along with Matt Mullett aboard in an advisory role. Ron Wille, AAM’s President, together with his management team will lead the business. AAM’s highly skilled workforce and state-of-the-art 57,000 s.f. facility will remain the same, and the company will continue to operate under the name All American Marine.

    “We are motivated to start this new chapter by joining forces with industry-leading Bryton. We will continue to deliver industry-leading products with the same high quality and superior service our customers have grown to expect,” says Ron Wille, President, All American Marine.
