KingFisher Story

KingFisher is the fastest growing designer, builder and marketer of welded heavy-gauge sportfishing boats in North America. We build and distribute 35 models in 5 series: Offshore, Coastal, Sport, Multi-Species and River Jet through an extensive global dealer network from California to Alaska to Eastern Europe.

Based on our advanced race-proven Pre-Flex® hull technology, our goal is simple—build a tough heavy-gauge aluminum hull, focus on market defining features including intelligent low maintenance design with an ideal balance of performance, ride responsiveness, precision handling and comfort. Test it and refine it in all types of conditions for maximum fishing versatility and safety. Make sure it is easily trailerable.

All KingFisher welded sportfishing boats are built at the Center of Excellence in Vernon, the most advanced aluminum boat building facility in North America. We are renowned for our custom built quality for anglers and practical outdoorsmen who seek maximum value, safety and performance from their fishing machines.

We Understand … We Fish Too!

We designed a better boat

KingFisher Boat

Every one of our heavy-gauge welded boats begins with the Pre-Flex® platform—and it's what makes them so impressive. The Pre-Flex® concept has been around since the dawn of architecture. It's simple really—when you arch a structure towards the load, it strengthens the structure's capability to handle the load.

We form each hull with "Pre-Flexed" components. As a result, everything the driver interacts with is designed for serious boating; unparalleled strength, impact resistance, sound dampening, superior fuel efficiency and most importantly, a smooth responsive ride in any kind of water.
