In 1948, G. Howard Lund built his first aluminum duck boat. The secret behind Lund’s success was in his craftsmanship. With an extreme attention to detail, Lund’s prototype offered a superior design and unparalleled engineering, creating greater fishability.
When a salesman from Inland Marine Corp. asked Howard for 50 more aluminum boats, the Lund Boat Company would begin the production of “The World’s Finest Fishing Boats”.
In 1961, Howard re-incorporated the company as Lund Metal Craft, Inc. and expanded in the fiberglass market. With the acquisition of Shell Lake Boat Company, Lund would now increase versatility with a product line up for family and sport.
Multiple generations of anglers have trusted Lund Boats to perform in the competitive fishing tournaments and we continue to partner with some of the greatest professional names in fishing.
