After well over 40 years of building mahogany boats in Holland Michigan, Grand Craft continues to thrive in its new facility located just outside of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
Grand Craft is well-suited to handle the production of wooden boats from twenty to sixty feet. Let us design and build the boat of your dreams - choose one of our stock boat designs or create your own vision for a custom boat.
Grand Craft melds state-of-the-art woodworking techniques with Old World craftsmanship; modern performance technologies with traditional styling. Each Grand Craft requires thousands of man-hours; a month or longer just in the finishing room. More craftsmanship and attention to detail per running foot than virtually any other watercraft made today.
Grand Craft utilizes a special wood epoxy saturation process, arguably the best epoxy lamination system available. Not only does this technique bond multiple layers of wood for unsurpassed flexibility and strength, but our process also makes the hull virtually impervious to any damaging effects of salt or freshwater.
In addition to protecting the wood, this saturation process eliminates the need for “soaking up” the hull, a task traditionally associated with wooden hulls. Grand Craft are ready for immediate use when launched for the first time.
Trained and skilled craftsmen mill and color match mahogany according to lofted patterns. Most models feature two layers of planking on the hull sides, with three layers of 1/4” mahogany on the bottom. Larger hulls are built with three layers on the sides and four layers on the bottom and transom.
African mahogany is preferred by Grand Craft for its flexible strength and sound/shock absorption, as well as its lasting beauty. Each piece is hand selected on the basis of the consistent, reddish-brown hue and grain; straight grain for side planking, ribbon grain for the transom if desired. Walnut and oak are often used on dash panels and storage compartments.
Stringers, made from high-grade fir, run the length of the hull for added strength.
All hardware is hand-cast brass or bronze, which is plated in copper, nickel, and chrome, by the highest quality process available. Heavy as it is handsome, this striking hardware exemplifies the quality of Grand Craft — strong, durable, and beautiful works of art.
Mechanical or hydraulic steering provides quick and stable responsiveness. Top-notch gas marine engines deliver up to 425 hp; these power plants are specified for Grand Craft weight and torque requirements to achieve speeds between 40 and 50 mph. Yet these engines are easily serviced by a knowledgeable marina.
Diesel engines are also selected with the same requirements for larger Grand Craft models.
