Our home is the seaside town of Gibsons, on British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast. Cut off from British Columbia’s metropolitan heartland by spectacular Howe Sound, Gibsons locals have always been at home on the water. For generations the town’s harbour has been home to all manner of working craft, each one unique in detail and purpose but together defined by their utilitarian design and unadorned functionality.
When we began production in 1996, we focused our efforts on crafting reliable and efficient water taxis and crew transport boats for British Columbia’s logging industry, and our hand-built aluminum hulls quickly gained a reputation for their strength and structural integrity. Ten years later we moved into the pleasure craft market and haven’t looked back. While the yachts we build stand out for their beauty and their luxurious detail, they still boast the strength, power, and reliability of the aluminum-hulled work boats that inspired them.
A quarter century in, Coastal Craft’s story is one of vision, perseverance, and a tireless drive for perfection. It is a proud example of what a leader and a team of talented local craftspeople can accomplish with a shared commitment to building something of significance for their families, their customers, and their community.
