Norton Yachts History

Norton Yachts began in 1948 by Ed Norton. In 1961, Billy Norton, Ed’s son, took over. Billy had a daughter named, Carolyn, who grew up watching her father run the boatyard in the little town of Deltaville, VA. Carolyn had a passion for the water and sailing, and this passion can be seen now, as she and her husband Ken have taken over for her father. Carolyn and Ken have now been running Norton Yachts since 1995, and they continue to keep the business firmly anchored right where it has been for three generations, traditionally and geographically.
