Coastal Craft

     The Coastal Craft team is comprised of professional, dedicated technicians, craftspeople and artisans who literally pour their unique skill, talent and heart into each component of every boat we produce. For 20 years our team has fostered a culture of innovation and in-house building, allowing us to create distinctive high-performance yachts for our highly discerning owners.

Our in-house production departments include aluminum and stainless steel fabrication and welding, wood joinery and cabinet making, yacht painting and finishing, mechanical/electrical rigging and installations, service and maintenance, engineering and design and administration. This range of in-house capabilities at Coastal Craft has allowed us to develop and add new innovative ideas and features into our products. It also enables us to seamlessly incorporate our customer’s requests and design details into their boats. With so much under one roof, our customers are treated to a real hands-on experience while in our production facility.

If you want something built right, build it yourself. For 20 years Coastal Craft has followed that mantra, and today we continue to hand build each and every craft in our Gibsons BC plant. You can feel it in the integrity and strength of each Coastal Craft Yacht; it is there throughout every stage of design and construction. The process begins with advanced planning in the Design & Engineering stages of each model, where the use of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Engineer” (CAE) software sets the blueprint for each precision cut and weld. It is there in the woodworking and cabinetry, the wiring and sound proofing, the fairing and yacht quality painting. It is there in the hands of each Coastal Craft technician who painstakingly and professionally tests for quality assurance, every day. If you haven’t yet experienced the difference in a handmade yacht versus a production yacht, you are in for a truly eye opening experience.

In 2007, Coastal Craft became the first company to design and build an aluminum boat powered with the Volvo Penta IPS System. Neither Volvo Canada nor Volvo USA had experience integrating their IPS into an aluminum boat at the time, and in fact, at the time there had only been 2 boats worldwide of any kind with the IPS installed.

This is only one example of Coastal Craft’s continuous push toward perfection - an elusive and unattainable goal which nevertheless animates our drive and desire for constantly improved performance and value in our crafts.

As this process was new to both companies, all integration and certification work was done at the Coastal Craft plant, rather than in Chesapeake Va., home of the Volvo IPS integration center. We were humbled that Volvo America and Volvo Canada would work with us, hand in glove, and we remain steadfast partners in high performance.
