Starting in 1964, Yvonne Willard began building the first best fishing and performance river Strip Boats to be found. Each hand made piece reflecting the experienced craftsmanship that his customers had become to expect. Yvonne Willard passed it on to his son Joe Willard.
From an early age, Joe has been watching and learning from his father Yvonne as he went about the craft of building these unique boats. Now he is ready to share this family tradition with you.
Building boats since 1964 Yvonne Willard passed on to his son. My father and I over the years have come to solving the obvious problems others seem to ignore. It's not just a boat It's a lifestyle. Where others won't.... I will guarantee you the boat will run the way you would expect it to and what the videos show. I set the boat, trailer and motor up for you. It is a turn key deal. All you have to do is get in and go. There is no tricks on the video that makes the boat run the way they do. It is real. The strip Boat will tilt up to 45 degrees in a turn both ways. You don't get a side G force in a turn in a strip boat. Because the boat will roll in a turn. You get the down G force, like in a motorcycle in a turn. You can turn on a dime, with nine cents on the other side. Also If you have one of my dads old boats or mine and it doesn't want to work right for you. You can call me and tell me what the boat is doing. I can tell you how to fix it over the phone. Most of the time it's the weight of the person that is to light or heavy. When It's set up for you.... it will ride like a cadillac. That goes with my dads old boats too.
Every boat is made to order. Every boat as unique as its new owner. Contact us today to see how your custom fishing or performance Strip Boat experience can begin.
