After the war, the Beetle family sold the rights to the Beetle Cat to Concordia Company of South Dartmouth, MA. In 1946 the Beetle Cat mold, which is still being used today, and many of the patterns were developed by Leo Telesmanick. Concordia eventually set up a separate Beetle Cat division, and in 1960 moved the entire Beetle Cat crew, including Leo Telesmanick, to Smith Neck Road in South Dartmouth. Charlie York who had grown up sailing Beetle Cats, trained under Leo and managed the Beetle Cat Division from 1983 to 1988. He then bought the rights to the boat in 1993, and formed the current company Beetle, Inc. In 2003 Bill Womack bought the company, and in July of 2004 moved the operation to its current location in Wareham, MA.
