unequaled through experience and design evolution! With over 4 decades
of experience, Mike Boulton and his team of skilled craftsman have
firmly secured themselves as the preferred manufacturer in the aluminum
Mike was a young man in 1974 when his father, Dave
Boulton helped lay the ground floor for Alumaweld boats. The uniqueness
of his family owned business was the foundation of its success. Custom aluminum
boats built on a small scale with a very personal touch. From 1977
until 1987 Mike had the incredible opportunity of training one on one
with the notable Marine Architect and Engineer, Morse Torrgason. During
this apprenticeship he not only learned the full extent of lofting
boats from engineered drawings into full scale templates, but he also
excelled in his ability to produce extraordinary and innovative
When the family sold the business
this ability and knowledge allowed Mike to join with a partner and
establish his own boat building business, Jetcraft boats. Mike designed
all new boat models and over a 10-year period this business grew to be
very large and successful. Becoming large had its impact on quality,
diversity in product, and the personal feel to the product that Mike
truly wanted in the boats that he produced. All his working life he has
based his professionalism on the principles of artistry, craftsmanship
and customer service.
He then went on to design his own brand of boats and started his present company Boulton Powerboats.
Boulton Powerboats team is dedicated to producing the best custom aluminum
boats on the market today. They achieve this by combining the

Our Hull Design:
One of the very few manufacturers in the Pacific Northwest that can
engineer blueprints, and lofts their boat designs into templates.
2. Product advantage is that the owner of the business is a hands-on part of the production training and quality control.
3. Independent bottom stringer hull construction, added benefits of this construction design are:
*Provides more hull strength and quieter ride.
*Better accessibility, easier for repair - if ever needed!
*Drier bow entry design allows the boat to run with less wetted bottom
surface, which benefits: top speed, fuel economy, turning and handling
in choppy conditions.
*Engineered hull means consistency in construction - every boat will be the same.
*Boulton Powerboats hull designs incorporate curved gunnnel lines in
the appearance of their boats. More characteristic of fiberglass boats.
*Hull durability! Independent runner construction has
less connecting welds that can fatigue and simply makes a better built
*Extrusion alloys are harder, 6062 and 6063. For our
bottom stiffeners, versus box frame construction, which must be formed
from 5000 series alloys.
*More bottom bow stiffeners to prevent fatigue in bottom plate. (Less chance of cracking!)
4. Our ability to customize and provide attention to detail. This is a
product of 160 years of combined experience and 4 decades of boat
