StanCraft was founded in 1933 by W.H. "Billy" Young and his son
Stanley Young, when they handcrafted their first mahogany wood
speedster in Lakeside, Montana, on the shore of Flathead Lake.
Over the next 35 years, they constructed over 800 wooden boats.
The company builds approximately 10 wooden mahogany boats under
20 feet long, and another 12 large custom designs annually.
StanCraft boats range in length from 14 to 46 feet. Each boat is
handmade and takes about nine months to complete.

a 22' version designed by Stan Young in 1942, then re-created by
the brilliant Syd Young as a 29' speedster in 1998. Capacity can
hold 6-8 people. The engine is equipped with ingle 625hp Viper
