Northwest Boats

Since 2010, Northwest Boats has been part of the Renaissance Marine Group family, including Weldcraft Marine and Duckworth Boats. Renaissance Marine Group is a privately-owned, family company with deep roots in the Pacific Northwest. RMG is dedicated to designing and building the finest heavy-gauge welded aluminum boats on the water.

Moving into 2023, RMG has decided to shelve the Northwest Boats brand production until further notice.  

Renaissance Marine Group will continue to support dealership and consumer inquiries regarding Northwest Boats. All Northwest Boat hulls are warranted in writing against structural defects in material or workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the boat. For warranty details and coverage guidelines, including limitations for commercial and international users, please get in touch with a Renaissance Marine Group customer service representative at 509-758-9831.

“We certainly appreciate all our dedicated Northwest Boats dealers and customers.  It was a hard decision to make, but ultimately, we decided to take a step back from producing Northwest Boats to focus our post-pandemic production efforts on our Weldcraft Marine and Duckworth Boats product lines in a challenging manufacturing environment.”
David Feucht, Business Development Manager



Experience the Great Northwest

Flawlessly detailed and utterly indestructible boats: just like Northwest boaters

At the robust heart of every Northwest boat is smart engineering tailored specifically for local waterways and weather. The kind that painstakingly ensures the greatest consistency, strength, ride, and running performance. Super-tough 5086 aluminum alloy bottoms. Beefy extruded chines. The innovative EZ Arch step-through door, standard on most models, that lets you avoid unsnapping the top to access the bow area.

Their “Extras” are our “Of-course-that-comes-standard.”

Engineered to Dominate

EZ-Arch Door

A Northwest Boats exclusive innovation. The windshield creates a solid frame around the center bow door. The top is affixed to the frame, not the door, allowing easy opening without having to undo any snaps, zippers or velcro seals.

Family Friendly

Bring the entire family to cruise, fish, camp, wakeboard, or just simply relax. Everyone has a comfortable seat and storage areas to store belongings. Tall sides keep the interior dry and soft or hard tops are available on most models.

Whitewater Ready

Born and bred to navigate the challenging whitewater of the Snake River in Hells Canyon, but highly capable of safely running everything from extreme shallows to class 4 rapids. Stout design and welded aluminum ensures tank-tough strength and performance.


Northwest Boats are built with all-encompassing strength, flawless detail, and strikingly attractive lines. The structural integrity of our welded aluminum boats is unequalled in the heavy-gauge industry. Built to take a beating without ever missing a beat.


It takes years of training to achieve the skill and precision required to weld a Northwest Boat. Our designs demand an equal level of strength and beauty. Look closely for the “stacked dime” appearance of every aluminum weld. It’s the mark of perfection.

Fishing Features

Fish effectively and look good doing it. Northwest Boats feature unique designs, like wrapped rails, split-lid fish boxes, vertical and side-tray rod storage and so much more. For every technique, your tackle will always be close at hand.


Year-round use is an advantage that’s built into every Northwest Boat. Choose a full or partial hard top for the ultimate in comfort, or a convertible marine vinyl folding top that can be fully removed when it's time for summer fun. All tops are 100% watertight.

Made in USA

Northwest Boats always have been and always will be hand-crafted by highly skilled tradesmen and women in Washington State. We take great pride in our American-made heritage. Raw materials are purchased from U.S. vendors whenever possible.


The hull shape of our Freedom and Lightning outboard models features a 28º bow deadrise and 18º transom deadrise for the smoothest, driest ride in all water conditions. The waves and winds are no match for the chop-taming bottom design.
