Founded by Robert and Howard Lippincott and located in Riverton, NJ USA. Best known as a builder of one-design racing yachts such as the LIGHTNING, STAR, and COMET. In the late 1950s, the Lippincotts were at the forefront of the transition from wood to fiberglass construction and became the standard for a number of classes where they were consistently seen at the head of the fleet in national and international competition.
During the early 1980's, Lippincott built some larger yachts including the LIPPINCOTT 30 and 36.
