SeaArk Boats is a family owned and operated company, dedicated to building the strongest, safest, and most durable all-welded aluminum recreational boat on the market today.
Tough, durable, & versatile are words often used to describe SeaArk’s line of all-welded aluminum recreational boats. Boat Owners all over the United States rely on multi-purpose SeaArk Boats for fishing, duck hunting, transversing shallow rivers, hauling gear and supplies, moving people and a wide variety of other uses and adventures. While we do stock these boats from time to time, we recommend you let us custom order one of their many specialized models so you can have the boat that best fits your needs and lifestyle.
All SeaArk Recreational Boats are built to National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) standards, exceeding United States Coast Guard requirements for safety and construction. Being NMMA Certified means that your SeaArk Boat is better built, has more flotation, and contains NMMA certified components, all of which make a safer boat than a non-NMMA certified product. We use only heavy gauge aluminum for our hulls (.100 and .125) and our ribs, caprails and keels are all formed to be the toughest around.
Why Aluminum not fiberglass? From the SeaArk website:
Weight: Aluminum boats are typically lighter when compared with fiberglass models and require less power and fuel to run than that of fiberglass boats of equivalent size. Plus you can get away with a smaller tow vehicle.
Maintenance: Fiberglass is more susceptible to fading from ultra-violent light, and if you don’t maintain it, the boat will look chalky and faded in a few seasons. With aluminum you can typically just rinse down the boat.
Durability: Bang into a dock or a rock in a fiberglass boat and you’ll wind up with a deep scratch or chunk out of the gelcoat. A scratch in aluminum is often easier to fix.
Tradition: In fresh water, fiberglass is associated with run-abouts and cruisers, but the hard-core anglers seem to all use aluminum. Why swim against the current?
Resale: It’s related to tradition, but if you plan on upgrading in a few years, buy a boat that people in the area would want to buy from you one day. If everyone’s using aluminum, they’re not going to buy your used glass hull, no matter how awesome it is.
