A Tradition Continued

The Gibson houseboat legacy has entered into the next chapter of it’s life as the once family owned company has been passed on to another family of boating enthusiasts. Founded by William C. Brummett in 1968 in Tennessee, has now been passed down to a family of long-term Gibson enthusiasts, the Cawthornes’ in South Dakota. In 2012, Kelly and Pam Cawthorne purchased their 3rd Gibson houseboat and learned it will be the last of it's kind. With memories and family traditions built on their series of Gibson boats, the Cawthorne’s had acquired and relaunched Gibson Houseboats with the focus of Refining the Gibson Line and Modernizing it.
