COMPANY HISTORY

40 YEARS OF RUGGED INNOVATION

Intelligent, sturdy and versatile, Weldcraft Boats have a long history that stretches back nearly 50 years to its beginnings in Clarkston, Washington and the demanding rapids of the Snake River. Then, only a handful of river-running pioneers dare test these waters. The intense power of this river can swallow boats in an instant turning them to scrap in moments. So only the most skilled boat operators in boats expressly designed for the might of this river made it their gateway into dazzling and spectacular country out-of-touch by most.

Weldcraft was one of those pioneers. It’s where these boats were borne and where they’re still built today. Frankly, if a boat can withstand the rigors of the Snake they can stand-up to pretty much anything. And from the outset, that was the goal — to build boats to a lifetime standard. Weldcraft Boats have been painstakingly designed to deliver all the attributes anglers and boating enthusiasts demand. Beyond all the construction elements, features like interior space, walk-through space, attention to ergonomics and comfort, balance and attention to detail are wrapped into every Weldcraft package.

Weldcraft’s rugged good looks punctuate its sturdiness and affinity for angler functionality. These are hard working, hard fishing boats first and foremost. Don’t let the rich paint schemes or thick upholstery fool you, it’s Weldcraft’s strength of character that’s been its main attraction since the beginning. It’s precisely this character that’s won legions of fans who take these boats offshore in search of tuna, halibut and salmon. Whether it’s running enormous whitewater, scooting across shallow riffles, running out of sight of land or motoring across a favorite reservoir, Weldcraft’s a boat that says, “bring it on”.

Weldcraft is owned by Renaissance Marine Group (RMG), based in Clarkston, Washington. As an RMG brand, access to service, strict adherence to Weldcraft’s high standards of construction and performance and state-of-the-art design and manufacturing assure an exceptional ownership experience for Weldcraft owners past and present.

While you may never venture 50 miles or more into the Pacific, power through three story rapids or be faced with a 100 mile run across wind-blown chop, know that you could. That’s the spirit of Weldcraft, to capably take you and your precious cargo wherever your imagination allows.

WHY WELDCRAFT?

Welded From Bow To Stern, Port To Starboard,
And Heart To Soul.

Life on the water is more fulfilling when you have the fully-welded craftsmanship of a Weldcraft beneath your feet. Our boats aren’t meant to mold you into the status quo like the vast majority of fiberglass boats. They’re not reliant on rivets, screws, or nuts and bolts that wear out in a short time. Weldcraft boats are meticulously, fluently, and artfully welded to offer unparalleled strength and unrivaled value that only pure marine grade aluminum can provide.

For Every Foot In Length,
There’s OVER Twenty Feet Of Welding.

The 201 Weldcraft Maverick has nearly 400 feet of continuous welds. The 260 Cuddy King boasts over 700 feet. Why? Because they’re designed and built to guarantee ultimate longevity. Structural engineering is at the heart of every Weldcraft. Decades ago, our commitment to build the industry’s finest watercraft led us on a course far away from the traditional boat design and technology. Through innovative thinking, state-of-the-art manufacturing, and the dedication of highly skilled craftspeople, a revolutionary approach and keen understanding of form and function evolved. Achieving the Weldcraft form, hydrodynamic shape, and performance attributes we demand meant raising the standards. It meant scrutinizing every detail. It meant more time, material, and process be integrated into every boat. The results are blatantly evident in every Weldcraft on the water today and backed by a warranty that proves it.

Unlike most consumable goods in our throw-away society, welded aluminum exhibits the strength, reliability and weight reduction characteristics essential for long life. Weldcraft has elevated it to an art.
