Triton aluminum boats were being made down south somewhere, but they had so many quality issues that they moved the operation to Minnesota. Being a Brunswick company at that time they had Crestliner employees train Triton employees on how to weld aluminum.
Ranger did not buy Triton, P.E. Equity did. They bought Ranger, Triton, Stratos, Champion and a couple of others. Most of these boats are being built in Flippin now.
When Ranger had the aluminum line, the hulls were built by Crestliner, but the boats were finished off in Flippin. They were a much nicer boat package than the Crestliner.
