Have you ever heard of White River Marine Group?

For those who find solace, joy, and adventure in the great outdoors, few experiences hold a candle to the thrill of fishing in the early morning stillness, the exhilaration of speeding across crystal waters on a high-performance boat, or the rugged delight of off-roading through natural splendor.

These pursuits aren’t just activities; they’re a lifestyle, a passion, a community. For those eager to immerse themselves in these experiences, the name that resonates with quality, innovation, and heritage is the White River Marine Group.

The Genesis of Outdoor Excellence: The Origins of White River Marine Group

Nestled within the heart of the Ozarks, the genesis of WHITE RIVER MARINE GROUP™ (WRMG) can be traced back to the scenic magnificent river flowing, the White River—a source of inspiration for lovers of fishing, boating, and the untamed wilderness. WRMG, now standing as the globe’s biggest selling fishing boat brand and foremost builder of both fishing and recreational vessels in terms of volume, is a proud subsidiary of the Bass Pro Group, headquartered in Springfield, Missouri. This conglomerate umbrella includes renowned outdoor retail giants Bass Pro Shops® and Cabela’s®.

The visionary behind this sprawling empire, Johnny Morris, embarked on his quest with the founding of Bass Pro Shops, thereby solidifying its status as North America’s leading outdoor retail destination. This initiative was fueled by an unwavering commitment to supply the outdoor community with groundbreaking, high-quality equipment suitable for fishing, hunting, and beyond. Since its humble beginnings in the late 20th century, spanning from the 1960s to the 1970s in Missouri and Arkansas, WRMG, alongside Bass Pro Shops, has woven a rich narrative deeply entwined with the fabric of the great American outdoors.

The narrative took an adventurous turn in 2019 when WRMG and Bass Pro Shops collaborated with Textron, stepping confidently into the off-road industry to introduce the TRACKER OFF ROAD series. This union drew upon Textron’s reputable background in aerospace and defense, marking a significant milestone in its long history of making the outdoors more accessible through innovative ATVs, side-by-sides, and sport carts. This collaboration has enabled diverse outdoor enthusiasts, including trail riders, farmers, and hunters, to engage more intimately with nature’s vast playground.

Throughout its evolution, WRMG has been at the forefront of nautical and off-road innovation, making laudable strides such as introducing the first ready-to-fish boat, motor, and trailer package and pioneering the modern bass boat with world class service. It’s through these seminal contributions to the outdoor sports industry that WRMG has continually exceeded customer expectations, as evidenced by their multiple CSI awards for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction. Each product, whether designed for water or land, is conceived with the outdoorsman’s needs in mind, ensuring each adventure—be it on the serene waters or rugged dirt trails—is unparalleled.
