About Us

It all started with the enthusiastic love the Smoker family has for boats and the water. In 1961, the first Smoker Craft boat rolled off the line marking the beginning of a boat building tradition -- a tradition of quality and craftsmanship that can be achieved only through the pride and attention to detail that a family-owned company can provide. Three generations and over 45 years later, we continue to produce solidly built, top quality boats under the Sylvan brand. We invite you to experience the pride of ownership that comes with owning a Sylvan pontoon or fishing boat - and share in a time honored family tradition.

Aluminum

The small aluminum boat with an Evinrude outboard. For as long as most of us can remember, it's been THE bread and butter fishing package. And it's never been taken more seriously than right now. The outboards may be small, but the technology is anything but.

Evinrude advantages

Pontoon

Two-stroke technology combines with direct injection for consistent power
and acceleration and instant throttle response.
Great for performance pontoons and pulling skiers.

Quiet idle

With virtually no vibration.
A combination of advanced cowling, sound-dampening materials,

Pinpoint oiling

Not a single drop is wasted.

You can fog it and re-fog it anytime.
It's automatic and takes just four minutes.
Provides great protection against salt air and corrosion.
And virtually eliminates winterizing in the North.
Nice day in November?
Take the boat out.
