Established in Sarasota, Florida, Talon Marine started production of flat and tunnel hulled boats during the mid 1980s. Talon Marine boats created racing and sport suited vessels ranging from 16 to 37 feet in length. Initially building catamaran-style powerboats utilizing outboard motors, inboard/outboard propulsion was made available on Talon Marine watercraft onward from the 1988 model year. Hand-built vessels, Talon Marine vessels are capable of speeds up to and over 100 miles per hour. In 2006, Talon Marine was declared out of business.
