Calabria boats is formerly known as Ski Brendella. But Calabria is kinda like sister company to MB.(Mike Brendel).

I believe it was 2 brothers at first. Then had a falling out and split.

I'm pretty confident that Mike Brendel and the owner of Calabria are not brothers. I am also pretty sure that the guys who started Centurion, MB, Calabria and Malibu have all worked together in some of the above mentioned companies as well, namely Brendella and Centurion if I remember the stories correctly.

Yeah I almost bought a 90 Ski Brendela from a friend a few years ago but went with a newer Pro V instead. I loved my Pro V but it did have somethings I didn't like. The back seats had screws going the wrong way and sometimes you would sit on them. I had to cut them off so we wouldnt get poked. I did like tha boat all around though. The balast system although only 700 lbs was awesome. I currently have an MB V23 and I love it. It's a very flashy boat and whatever lake i go to people are always comming up to us and freaking out about the looks of the boat. Anyway, have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy the Brendella

Roger Cruise & Bob Jessen are the owners of Calabria, and former business partners of Mike Brendel. They had a falling out & bought Mike out of the company. Mike took the name (Ski Brendella), and started MB with new partners. Take a look at the two makes a few years ago, very similar, especially things like the vents & speaker grills.

Since when does "Falling Out" really mean felony arrest and doing time?

I'd only guess Brendel based on what Bocephus typically posts, but I honestly wouldn't know otherwise...what's the story there? Sounds juicy!

You can't leave us with half the story.
What's the rest?
Old    bocephus            12-10-2007, 9:31 AM Reply   
Do your research, the information is out there. Most of the other boat builders know the story and will tell you if you ask them at the shows...Most of the pros know the story too. Lets just say, when it rains it snows...if you know what I mean. That silly white stuff gets lots of people in trouble...
