Larson Boats Review

Shop for Larson boat parts and accessories

With the goal of creating better boats in mind, Paul Larson founded Larson Boats in Little Falls, Minnesota in 1913. According to Larson, the nearly 100 years they have been in business allows them to produce a quality product at a reasonable price. Larson claims their boats are some of the best value on the market because of their cutting edge hull design, emphasis on comfort and convenience, aesthetically-minded design, fuel efficiency, and relatively high resale value.

They also claim their original hull designs and other safety features keep riders from needless danger while using their boats. Because of its longevity, the company has a strong reputation in the industry and a large customer base.

Pricing

Because of the wide range of models offered, new Larson boats can cost between $60,000 and $400,000. Used boats start near $20,000 for smaller models and $120,000 for larger and higher performance craft.
