Every once in a while, a relatively unknown boat company surprises everyone with a product that possesses an uncommon blend of performance, craftsmanship and fit and finish. Such is the case with a company known as Princecraft. This Brunswick boat company has been the leading aluminum boat builder in its native Canada for over 50 years and has managed to build a strong reputation in the United States. That’s because recently, Princecraft began going after larger geographic U.S. market share. Since quality sells boats just as well as price, you can expect Princecraft to become a more popular choice in your neck of the woods. Much of the reason for the high praise of Princecraft lies in the way it constructs its hulls. Where most manufacturers choose either to rivet, weld or glue their strings and hull seam, Princecraft combines all three methods. The combined benefits of all three of those techniques at work results in an aluminum deck boat that rides and feels as quiet as one made of fiberglass, only much lighter and more fuel efficient. Another Princecraft deck boat exclusive is the use of integrated side body panels in place of traditional fencing. This results in a much sleeker and durable design and over all a better performing boat. Princecraft Boats was purchased by Brunswick International Limited in 2001 and began marketing boats in the U.S. in 1991. Princecraft has over 200 dealers throughout North America.
