Actually, the Nitro Bay Boats are made by Kenner Marine, in Knoxville, Arkansas. Kenner also makes the Mako Inshore series boats as well as a full line of inshore and bay boats with their own badging. Kenner Marine is now owned by Tracker Marine Group, as is Mako, SeaCraft, Tracker, Suntracker, Nitro, ProCraft, Fisher, Myacht, and Tahoe.
By-the-way and for what it's worth, the Kenner is one of the dryest boats (of it's kind) I have ever run.
A quote from the Kenner Brochure reads: "The Kenner family began designing and building boats in 1947. Since then, the Kenner name has become synonymous with dependable, high-quality fishing craft. The concept of the "bay boat," birthed decades ago by Kenner, has been copied ever since.
Called the Kenner "Original" Dry-Ride Hull."
Hope this helps clarify the question!
