Company Description

Everything Has A Reason

Over time this statement became a culture at Bass Cat and Yar-Craft Boats.  A simple tribal tactic, not one that comes from a how-to manual or a mission statement.  It comes with years of building the finest bass and walleye boats in the world.  Our staff compiles hundreds of years of boat-building experience.  We aren’t the new kids on the block, and we know our culture runs deep. 

We uphold a commitment to ensuring each boat is comprised of the finest quality throughout the manufacturing process.  Better resins, better fiberglass, better techniques and not cutting corners in any segment.  It’s not about the price, it’s about the boats and the people that build and run them.
