Pacific Boats was established in 1986 as Pacific Manufacturing, Inc. The company built custom all-welded aluminum work boats more commonly referred to as skiffs. In the United States, the term 'skiff' generally refers to a small, shallow draft, open deck work boat. They are often called upon to meet the needs of commercial anglers. In addition to the commercial fishing industry, doors were opened to other markets. Examples range from net setting, crabbing, shrimping and aquaculture, to hauling freight, construction, dredging, oil spill response, diving and resort use.
After several successful years manufacturing 'made to order skiffs', the design and manufacturing processes were channeled into the development and production of premium quality, high performance, deep V-hull sport fishing boats.
With a marine engineering background, skills in commercial ship repair and manufacturing, the owner brings over 35 years of experience to the company. In a highly fragmented industry, our boat design and manufacturing processes continue to be industry leaders meeting the needs of anglers around the world.
Our manufacturing facility is located 10 miles north of Everett, Washington where The Boeing Company manufactures the worlds leading wide body commercial aircraft, the '747.'
