Rossiter Boats is a Canadian company that has been building high quality Classic Closed Deck Cruisers for close to 40 years. The power boat division of this diversified boat builder has included the Rossiter 14 and two models of the Rossiter 17, with a center console version joining with the Classic Runabout with both combining the ultimate in style and performance.
Rossiter Boats represent a total commitment to quality and craftsmanship and are available at Wefing's Marine of Apalachicola, FL.
Rossiter has responded to the wishes of its customer base and designed and built a 23 foot version, the R23 Classic Day Boat, which promises to be all the other boats in the Rossiter lineup are -- and a few feet more.
The 23 Classic Day Boat will be a welcome addition to the Rossiter lineup and to Wefing's Marine.

Some information from the Rossiter Boats website:
As we embark on our 40th year of designing and building boats for customers who demand big-water performance, efficiency and attention to detail in small craft, we are pleased to announce our newest member of the Rossiter family, the R23 classic day boat. After listening to boaters from the Great Lakes to our oceans it became clear to us that you were looking, not for another fishing boat or cruiser, but rather a classic “day boat”. A boat in which family and friends can get out on the water with confidence whether for a leisurely cruise, island hopping, picnicking, watersports, cottage hauling or a little fishing and story-telling with grandpa. So with that in mind, the Rossiter design team brought the R23 to life, delivering a sleek set of lines with comfortable seating for up to 10 passengers behind the windshield, and a spacious cockpit with lots of seating under canvas for those seeking a little shade or for when the weather turns. The helm seat also adjusts fore and aft with a bolster that flips up allowing plenty of room to stand and drive for when you want the wind in your hair. And like a thoroughbred, even when loaded, a Rossiter 23 will jump out of the water with little to no bow rise, so when the seas get choppy she will get you home safely and quickly without draining the tank.
Below deck you’ll also find more space for gear along with a head that doesn’t require you to get into a yoga position when nature calls.Of course, if watersports are on the agenda, rest assured, she has been engineered to handle 150-250 horses offering great range and a nice top end when you need it and easy access in and out of the water. And, as with all Rossiters, the R23 will be built to the highest of standards, fit and finish, is self-bailing and unsinkable, offering boating memories for generations to come, and backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. After all, it isn’t just any powerboat, it’s a Rossiter.
We eagerly await the arrival of the first of what we expect to be a strong entry into the Wefing's Lineup of high-quality and unique vessels. We will keep our users of this website informed as well as share the information via our newsletter. You can sign up for newsletters here.
