Welcome to Skiff Craft, in business since 1904 as the Henry Boat Company. In 1959, the company was renamed Skiff Craft and moved to Ohio. By relocating to Ohio, Local Amish and Mennonite communities are available to custom build each Skiff Craft using time-honored woodworking skills.
I want to crack some sort of joke here, like they work religiously on the boats or something dumb like that. But the simple fact is that these boats are built with extreme quality and craftsmanship. They also represent what is best about Woody Boating. Built by by hand, out of wood, and with a respect to history and tradition. When you buy a Skiff Craft, you are in fact buying into a Skiff Craft not just another boat. That is always a good thing. You know that each boat was built with a conviction of doing the right thing, no short cuts or tricks. They also have a web site. The Amish and the web? www.Skiffcraft.com
