About Duckworth

Our Story

Duckworth Boats, a renowned American boat manufacturer with over 50 years of history, is based in Clarkston, Washington. The company specializes in producing top-notch heavy-gauge aluminum boats, crafted to exact specifications using the finest materials and advanced technology. This dedication has positioned Duckworth Boats as an industry leader.

Renowned for being the boats that ‘conquered the West,’ Duckworth’s creations are celebrated for their capability to enhance every aquatic adventure. Originally focused on inboard engine boats with jet propulsion for navigating challenging waters, Duckworth now offers a diverse range of thirteen outboard models suitable for various water bodies, from lakes and rivers to offshore environments.

The legacy of the founder, Ernie Duckworth, continues to be the cornerstone of the company. Despite several changes in ownership, Duckworth Boats has unwaveringly upheld Ernie’s vision of excellence in boat construction and performance. The boats are not only visually striking but also boast superior on-water performance.

Today, as a part of the Renaissance Marine Group, Duckworth Boats brings additional advantages to its customers. This affiliation enhances the boats’ market value, guarantees exceptional service, and leverages the strengths of a large-scale, individualized boat manufacturing process.

Throughout its evolution, Duckworth Boats has steadfastly adhered to its founding principles of customer-centric service and quality, a legacy that began with the original founder and continues to guide the company’s direction and success.

9- Exclusive Extrusions

You need only glance to know it’s a Duckworth. Massive chine, gunwale and keel extrusions make Duckworth boats immediately identifiable and distinctive. They also make them ultra-strong. Welded continuously from inside the boat with a tongue-and-groove style assembly assures each Duckworth’s strength and integrity. Solid, thick extruded pieces of tempered aluminum assure the unique strength and design characteristics of every Duckworth.

10- A True Reverse Chine

It’s a difference you’ll see immediately in the bottom of most outboard Duckworth boats. Duckworth’s true reverse chine isn’t just a piece of aluminum that’s welded to the bottom of the boat, it’s a dramatic angle that’s formed into the bottom and creates unparalleled lift and instant planning performance.
