Meet Byron Bolton

Our first aluminum fishing boat hit the water in 1959. Since then over 133,000 boats have been purchased by avid fishermen and families across North America.

Over the last sixty four years, our tough welded heavy-gauge boats have grown in size along with our customers’ loyalty. We have focused on building a model that fits every need — from our hard charging Extreme Duty River Jet models to our tough innovative Multi-Species line to our category leading KingFisher Offshore models. 

We pride ourselves on using the best available technology to build the best heavy-gauge welded aluminum boats available today. 

Over 133,000 proud owners have thanked us for building a boat that delivers memorable fishing experiences and stronger happy families. Whether it’s jigging for halibut with best friends or working the weed lines for lakers with dad, we work hard to provide the elements to grow closer to the most important people in your life. 

Our participation in racing has led to the development of stronger, engineered designs built using our exclusive Pre-Flex® hull technology. We also deliver best-in-class ride performance with built-in fishability. When you purchase your next boat, be sure you benefit from these advanced features and be assured that when you buy a KingFisher, you are buying a tough heavy-gauge welded aluminum boat built by a world leader in the marine industry. See you on the water soon.”
