We've been running KingFisher Boats for 5 year in some of BC's toughest West Coast conditions. They handle great in big water and give our guides and clients peace of mind. Everything from nicely designed cabin interiors to the fishing cockpit is well thought out and leaves nothing to be desired. If you're looking for a great fishing boat that is both functional and economical to run, you can't go wrong with a KingFisher Offshore series boat.

Vernon Search and Rescue owns and operates a heavy-gauge welded aluminum KingFisher 1875 Extreme Shallow boat powered with the 200 HP Mercury Optimax Sport Jet.
The team is delighted with its outstanding performance including reliability and toughness. It is quick to get on plane and can run in only 4" of water. We do not hesitate to recommend this craft to any law enforcement or search & rescue operation

I recently purchased an Extreme Shallow from Canyon Marine in Idaho. This spring I towed to Prince Rupert, B.C. to bring it home. On the way, I stopped at the Salmon River. I was warned not to go up if the water level was over 15'. I departed with 17' of water and ran 45 miles up the river. Shallow wasn't the challenge. Extreme rapids and white water was a true test of the hull. Needless to say, it was an adrenaline rush but a very successful and rewarding trip.
In 2005, we purchased a 2825 Offshore. we launched from Rupert across Dixon Entrance in 40 mph winds. That boat performed great as we circumnavigated Prince of Wales, Baranof, Chicagof, Admirality, Kuiu, Etolin, and Kupreanof Islands. Many exciting memories for my wife and I in all our KingFisher

Some might think that a multi-species inshore boat would not endure the punishment that an offshore boat goes through, but in some cases it has to be tougher!
Temple Bay Lodge is located in the Canadian shield and every day the boat is put up against the rocky shorelines for shorelunch and Eagle lake also has its share of bad weather. We have four 2025 Flex's, six 1925 Flex's, seven 18' Trio's, and three 18' Warrior's that have stood up to these conditions and more.
The comfort and the ability to work with KingFisher to customize a boat has become the most sought after option to our customers, has made us a leap ahead of others in the industry I have been in this business for 40 years and these are by far the toughest boats on the market today that will take the punishment and still last many years past the competition.

I have been a guide and guide staff manager for almost 30 years in Ontario. As the owner and operator of Silver Water Wheel Lodge, I continue to guide every day. Over the course of my career, I have driven and guided out of dozens of different boats and I can tell you definitively that the Kingfisher 2025 Flex Tiller is by far the best. In fact, I have not found a boat in the same class.
My KingFisher feels big and rides smooth. It flattens out the chop and provides a dry and comfortable ride even on the big water of Lac Seul. The huge casting deck offers plenty of space for two of my guests to cast and the tiller platform gives me the ability to backtroll the tightest contours with precision. I have a rod lock for guests along with a personal rod locker. My entire shorelunch kit fits in one of 3 big storage compartments leaving plenty of space for my guests gear.
I spent 20 years looking for a boat with all of these qualities and features and I finally found it. I love my KingFisher!

Absolutely amazing we love them. I will be buying more and a lot of my guests who own there own rigs are already contemplating in making a switch. Fishing machines for sure and exactly what we need at AML. Thanks for building an awesome product.

I just purchased a 1825 Falcon and I just want to say WOW! I've put 21 hours on it in a week. I absolutely love this boat. I've had so many compliments already. The boat really is incredible. Thank you KingFisher

For what I do, it's everything I need in a boat. I fish offshore, inside passage and inshore. It's our family tow boat, it's my swiss army knife.

My new boat has taken us salmon fishing everywhere on the West Coast - Campbell River, Nootka Sound and so many more places. With its huge deck space, in-floor fish lockers, cleaning table with cutting board, and lots of storage it delivers great fishability. We've fished it with 8 people - very safe boat.

I've been commercial fishing since 1961. I've owned many boats. My 16 foot Falcon is by far the best small boat I've owned. I can stand on the gunnel when I'm pulling prawn traps - no problem. Very stable safe ride even in a windy 35 blow-up. Very economical as I burn only $12 for the day with my 50 HP. Unbelievably easy to handle, easy to load, great for easy beach access for beach combing too.
D. Hopkins - 1625 FalconParksville, BC
We run the Athabaska, Peace and North Saskatchewan rivers and we're extremely happy with our Extreme Duty. Awesome boat. We've added a heater so -2°C and snowing was still a ton of fun. I think my buds need two more 1775's.

Eagle West was the first resort on Eagle Lake to use KingFisher boats. We chose KingFisher as we needed a boat that would stand the test of time on our rugged rough Canadian Shield Lake. The heavy gauge construction makes it the perfect choice for the Resort owner. KingFisher Boats are Stronger, Safer, Dryer.

Words can not describe how proud and happy we have been with the purchase of our new KingFisher Flex 2025 Sport. All the customer support from John when we ordered it, the plant tour with Barry when we visited the plant in Vernon and saw our boat being built. From the beginning when Annette greeted us at reception to all the employees saying hi as we took our tour—it was first class.
We are so very fortunate to work with KingFisher, a Made In Canada company!
