WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE
Each "Hope It Floats" boat is hand crafted in New England with native woods and a lot of patience. I build one boat at a time to focus on quality. Light weight boats make it easier to enjoy getting on and off the water. After a long day on the water, picking up a boat that weighs less than a school bag can be a dream come true. My lightest boat to date is just 10 pounds!
