Kencraft is a 25 year old boat manufacturing company located in Wilson, North Carolina. We are an independent company, not owned by a major corporation or investment group. Many of our employees are family and have been with us for decades. All of this adds to our ability to offer you the most value-packed boat on the market.

We are excited about offering our new brand of Sea King saltwater boats, 100% wood free and built “sea tough.” The materials that go into our boats are the highest quality we can find, and the fit and finish is superb.

Our Bayrider line of skiffs offers new inner-liners in the hull. Not only does our unique hull design give the best ride and performance of any skiff on the market, but the liners offer superior strength and ease of maintenance. Bayrider –“it’s all in the ride.”

Thank you for considering our boats for your fishing and family enjoyment. We still care about building boats one at a time, so you can have the best value on the water. Compare, and we think you will like what you see with SeaKing and Bayrider boats. Remember, it is easy to buy one of our boats; we have an awesome group of dealers representing our products, and they are ready to make you a deal.
