The Alumacraft boating company history started in 1893 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The
companies indirect founder, Eugene Tetzlaff was a blacksmith by trade and moved
to the Minneapolis area to open an ironworks company. That company would later
be called Flour City Ornamental Iron Company. The business flourished, staying
afloat through World War II and the Great Depression. After World War II, the
iron company was overstocked with aluminum and the idea of aluminum boats was
born. In 1946, a rowboat was the first to be designed and built by the
ironworks company beginning Alumacraft\\\'s history. In the years since the first
rowboat was built, Alumacraft has designed and built many boat varieties
including sporting boats, fishing boats, Jon boats, and bass boats.
Alumacraft sporting boats and fishing boats include the Trophy, Tournament, Dominator,
and Navigator series. Sports boats tend to be developed with sport in mind.
Alumacraft fishing boats offer a walk through windshield to increase space and
allow for easy movement from the front to back of the fishing boats.
Professional fishing boats by Alumacraft are available from the Tournament
series. Tournament fishing boats are equipped with walk through windshields,
live wells, and ergonomic seating. Alumacraft fishing boats are also available
with deluxe side consoles, tiller steering, center consoles, and traditional
bass fishing boat styles.
Jon boats are a specialty of Alumacraft. Jon boats are
available in side console all-welded, tillers all-welded, and riveted. Side
console all-welded Jon boats are designed with low profile sides and ergonomic
seating. Marketed under the MV series, Alumacraft side console all-welded Jon
boats are available with two or four seats depending on model. Also marketed in
the MV series is the tiller all-welded Alumacraft Jon boat. This design
provides durability without the extras. Seating is available on the bow and
stern of the boat and low profile sides are standard. Alumacraft riveted Jon
Boats are lighter than all-welded varieties and come with an optional side
Alumacraft also carries a line of aluminum flat bottom
canoes for outdoor sporting or cruising. The three available designs include
the Lt. Cruiser, Cruiser, and Square Stern. Square stern Alumacraft canoes
allow boaters to attach an optional motor.
Alumacraft provides detailed design and performance
specifications for all current models. Available information includes length,
width, weight, hull, and capacity. Fishing boats and sporting boats also list
motor horsepower, fuel tank capacity, hull thickness, and maximum capacity.
Performance tests are completed on many Alumacraft models
with details published on the official Alumacraft website. Performance tests

Crappie, Dominator and many others. Performance data is tested at varying RPMs
typically ranging from 1000 RPM to 5500 RPM. At any given RPM, miles per hour,
