Correct Craft Enters Aluminum Fishing Boat Market – Quimby's Cruising Guide

Correct Craft Enters Aluminum Fishing Boat Market

Correct Craft has announced that it is entering the aluminum fishing boat market with the acquisition of SeaArk Boats.

SeaArk, a premier aluminum fishing boat, is a quality leader in its segment with both outstanding product and customer service reputations. Correct Craft announced it plans to continue manufacturing SeaArk at its facility in Monticello, Arkansas.

SeaArk Boats’ prior owner and member of its founding family, Robin McClendon stated, “After fifty-eight years in the marine industry, it is a bitter-sweet decision for the McClendon family to exit the recreational boat building business, but we believe that we have found the right owner in Correct Craft. SeaArk Boats is successful today because of the many dedicated and talented team members who have worked hard to help our company thrive. I am very grateful to have worked alongside these people, and I know that our team members, as well as our legacy, are in good hands with the Correct Craft team!”

Correct Craft’s President and CEO Bill Yeargin stated, “SeaArk Boats is an outstanding company with a strong brand, great reputation and exceptional team. We could not be happier to have them joining the Correct Craft family. The McClendon family have done a wonderful job for decades, and we are honored that they would trust their brand, legacy and employees to Correct Craft. We are thrilled to work together with the SeaArk team in Monticello to continue to grow the company.”
