Our Company

Harold and ArthurFamily Values: Family First

We’re not just boat builders. We’re boaters, just like you. For five generations and counting, our family has been dedicated to sharing the wonder of boating by creating the finest watercraft that money can buy. That’s really all there is to it.

Each year we put this heritage on the line with great new lineups that build on the core values that have guided our company since 1921 – to build innovative, high quality boats that families can afford, and back them with the best warranty and the best customer service there is.

Smoker Craft can trace its roots in the boating industry all the way back to 1921, when the Smoker Craft Lumber Company, as it was called, was a world leader in production of oars and paddles.  In, 1963 we built on those four decades of experience and began making boats of our own.  

While our designs have changed and evolved over the years, what has remained constant is the painstaking care and meticulous attention to detail that goes into crafting every single one of our boats. Many of our more than 900 employees have been with us for 30 years or more, and their skill and craftsmanship is unmatched in the industry.

We love boating, and we want to share it with the world. That is our commitment. That is our heritage.
