The Warrior brand of fibreglass multi-species fishing boats has been pulled from the fire as four Minnesota businessmen announced a relaunch of the company.
The new owners, led by pro walleye angler Dave Anderson and former Warrior dealer Joe Hellerman, announced they have purchased all rights to the Warrior name and trademark, along with all molds and tooling. The new company is now searching for a factory location with the intention of having new Warrior boats available for sale by the end of this year. The new company will employ about 10 people, including key staff from Warrior’s previous ownership.
In short press release, the new owners state they plan to sell the six most popular Warrior models , with others available on a special-order basis. The group is now looking for prospective dealers.
At its peak, Warrior was producing about 300 boats per year, targeting the professional walleye market.
