Wood Grains


Wood Grains

The construction of hand crafted fiberglass boats that look like real wood.


Want the grace and beauty of a custom wooden runabout without the constant care that wood demands?  Elite Craft Boats has the answer. We have been making wooden looking runabouts captured in fiberglass for over 30 years. Most of our boats are still on the water! This means no more re-planking, no more caulking, no more varnishing. Keep the look of a beautiful wood grained custom built runabout for decades without ever having the need the strip, re-finish and restore.


Today, Our fiberglass wood grain finish is second to none.. it is the result of years of  development which has evolved into what you see today… the best part? It lasts and lasts with the durability that will keep you satisfied for years to come.


“We cannot believe this is not real wood!” This is what visitors were saying during the debut of our new wood grain at one of the largest antique and classic boat shows (ACBS) in the country.
