The ultimate wood boat. StanCraft boats, with their distinctive African mahogany hulls, are known around the world. Handmade in America.
The builders will use the blueprints to cut the frames and attach them to the keel. Every piece is mechanically attached with a #10 stainless steel screw and bonded with a 5200 adhesive.
After it has been framed we start planking the hull. There are many ways to build a boat but for the past 83 years we have used the plank on frame process, it is a tried and true process and gives the hull an incredible amount of strength.
When we are finished planking we plug all of the screw holes. We hand select the perfect plug for each hole making sure that the grains match and are facing the same direction. After each plug is carefully glued in place we sand them flush to the planks.
Once the hull is completed it will move to our top side shop. This is where we finish all of the remaining wood work from the deck planking to the seat frames and floors.
StanCrafts are just as beautiful on the inside as the outside. Here we add those elegant features like mahogany decking, shelving, and more. We spend 100’s of hours on the interior alone.
Now that all of the woodwork is done we stain and varnish the boats. We apply 16 coats of varnish and buff it to a mirror finish.
While the finishing process is taking place we are also rigging the boat. In this stage we install all of the electrical components and pull hundreds of feet of wire through the boat as well as install the engine(s), drives, and fuel system.
No boat leaves before its time. We water test every boat for a minimum of 6 hours before it leaves for its new home. Systems are dialed, props are tuned, engines are perfect. Just turn the key and have a blast!
The tightest wood hull ever made. No separation.
