American Mariner Industries
1976-1981
americanmarinerboats.home.comcast.net

Founded by Arthur S. Henry. All models were designed by Henry, who held a patent for their unique recessed cabin sole (into the keel) that provided increased interior headroom.
Most of the 'American' line was built between 1976-1980.
As with so many other pleasure boat builders, AMI went bankrupt during the severe economic downturn at the beginning of the 1980's.
Some time later, The Reinell Co. bought the assets and it is thought that they made a few sailboats from the AMI molds. The dates are very uncertain but within a short period of time, Reinell also seems to have gone out of business. Reinell built a number of sailboats of this size and the Reinell AMI connection is not well understood.
Most of Reinell's assets (including most of the molds) were sold to Beechcraft Marine.
Beechcraft was soon foreclosed on by it's bank and the AMI molds and remaining assets were further scattered. A company in Oregon by the name of Cal Custom bought the Reinell name but aparrently none of the Reinell tooling remains.

There were two different addresses listed for AMI:

1186 North Grove Street
Anaheim, CA 92806

1945 Plancentia Avenue
Costa Mesa, CA 92627

HID prefix for American Mariner models was AMX (since reassigned).
Much of this information comes from the website shown here.
