Company

Versatility at the Helm
Excellence at the Core

For over 30 years now, Concept Boats has been manufacturing powerboats that are as versatile as they are sleek. As a Miami-based family business, we build with a commitment to craftsmanship—all reflected in our unparalleled performance, durable construction, and signature custom graphics. We craft with flexibility in mind, customizing features to suit your style.

Our innovative materials and inventive designs have cemented our reputation as a leader in the industry. In just the past three decades, we have gone from manufacturing five boats per year to just over 100. But even as we continue to grow, we remain as committed as ever to our attention to detail. From our angler-friendly flats to our high-performance racers, a Concept Boat is built to last.

Meet the Concept Boats Family

Luis Avila, President
Luis Avila, President

Born in Miami to Cuban immigrant parents, Luis has always looked at the world from the bow of a boat. From his parents, he acquired a strong work ethic, but his deep-rooted passion for boating has also fueled his success. At the age of 12, his father presented him with an exciting prospect — his first project boat. He began repairing boats and honing his skills at the family’s paint shop. By the time Luis graduated high school, he had completely overhauled four boats.

With his father’s support, Luis launched Concept Boats in 1986 and crafted the first-ever Concept — a 17′ ski boat with a single engine. Today, the Concept Repertoire includes eight models ranging from 20′ to 44’, a testament to Luis’ vision and dedication. After 31 years, Luis remains the captain of his business, working alongside his long-standing staff, building relationships with customers, and setting the standard for excellence.
