Alumacraft Owner Dave Benbow Dies - 06/16/2010

We are sorry to report that on Monday we received a letter from Alumacraft telling us that its president and owner Dave Benbow died last week. Dave oversaw the greatest development of the company and during the last decade before the recession it consistently built and sold over 10,000 aluminum boats per year. Those tremendous unit sales made it one of the top-selling boat brands in the country year after year. Alumacraft with Dave Benbow at the helm built 46 different models of fresh water fishing boat, more different models of jon boats than we could ever count, and canoes. Alumacraft is a family-owned business and has big plans for the future.

Alumacraft has been building boats since 1946.
