Austin Parker was among the very first shipyards in Italy to begin building classic lobster boats, like the ones they use in Maine for lobster fishing — characteristic fishing boats that first came about over the last century in New England.

Ten years on, strengthened by the success this sort of boat has had on the market, Austin Parker is launching a new range of lobster boats that run from 42 to 72 feet, aided by architect Fulvio De Simoni, one of the best known pleasure craft designers working today.
