Based in the Florida Gulf Coast area, Stamas Yachts is family owned and operated. The original owners, Peter and Nicholas Stamas, began building wooden boats in the late 1930s and learned boat making from Greek shipbuilders in Florida. In the 1950s with the advent of fiberglass, construction methods began to change and the Stamas brothers helped to pioneer the use of fiberglass in boat making. Stamas has built boats for military, law enforcement, and research purposes.

They claim to be one of the oldest boat companies in the US and also claim many industry standard features as innovations introduced by their company, from self-bailing cockpits to built-in livewells. The boats manufactured by Stamas are for fishing or other recreational purposes. There are three main lines in which their boats are made: the Express, the Tarpon, and the Predator.
