Bobbing back and forth while CONTINUALLY RIDING THE WAVES OF SUCCESS, POST FALLS BASED STANCRAFT, HAS MANAGED TO WEATHER THE VOLATILE AND CHANGING PLEASURE BOAT MARKET.

By producing quality hand CRAFTED WOODEN BOATS. CURRENTLY CELEBRATING ITS 75TH ANNIVERSARY, STANCRAFT BEGAN BY MAKING ITS MARK ON FLATHEAD LAKE IN MONTANA IN 1933,.

Company founder, stan young BEGAN BUILDING A BUSINESS THAT HE WOULD LATER PASS ON TO HIS SON SYD. WHEN MY DAD STARTED RIGHT OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL IN 1933 HE HAD.

A natural genius for the boats AND HE WAS A CAPABLE BUILDER AND DESIGNER SO HIS DAD MY GRANDPA HELPED HIM BUILD A BOAT SHOP OUT OVER THE WATER IN FLATHEAD LAKE IN THE EARLY.

30s and that’s where he STARTED YOU KNOW THEY WERE JUST BUILDING RUNABOUTS, PROBABLY FROM 33 UNTIL THE WAR BROKE OUT. AND AT THAT POINT EVERYBODY.

Shut down because you couldn’t BUY LUMBER ANYMORE THE WHOLE THING WAS WORLD WAR II. STANLEY CAME BACK AFTER THE WAR AND THE NEXT 20 YEARS OR SO STANCRAFT WAS WHERE THEY.

Built a great deal of the STANCRAFTS AROUND TODAY. I GREW UP IN THE BUSINESS I WAS BORN INTO IT AS A LITTLE KID I WAS DOWN AT THE SHOP SEEMED LIKE A FUN PLACE TO BE.

And i don’t think i had a TERRIBLY LARGE INTEREST IN THE DESIGN PROCESS UNTIL ABOUT 25 YEARS AGO, I HAD BEEN AROUND IT WORKED BESIDE MY DAD ON OCCASION WHERE I COULD WATCH.
