was founded in 1985 in a small shop in Clearwater, Florida, USA. Today, it’s located in a state of the art facility in Ozona Florida. Dorado began by building boats of high quality craftsmanship paired with innovative technology. Dorado’s first product was the Dorado 30. The Dorado 30 made it’s mark and went into full production in 1985 confirming Dorado’s identity. A few years later Dorado boats introduced the Dorado 23 and the company’s success was cemented. It was created by Bob Lickert and gained a reputation of being the “Best boat for the Bay.” Dorado was the first to utilize a hydraulic bracket to enable a more skinny water fishing experience. In the late 90’s Dorado introduced the 40, an extremely fuel-efficient vessel which is custom built. All Dorado custom boats are hand laid and constructed with a premium grade high-density divinycell core, bi & tri axles laminates and UV resistant gel coats. Dorado custom boats come standard with a custom carbon fiber switch panel with led lighting. Dorado now offers the 16 Skiff, 23 Dorado, 25 Dorado and 30 Dorado Custom Fishing Boats.
