Quality & Performance
A word about
Howard Custom Boats
Quality and performance…Two words synonymous with Howard Custom Boats since 1959. From the beginning, Howard Custom Boats has known what it takes to get the job done right. Drawing from over 49 years of custom boat building experience, today’s current full line of Howard Custom Boats, ranging in size from 25’ thru 36’(including our all new 288 Sport Deck), represents the finest in high performance boating-whether skiing , racing, offshore or pleasure. One of the few remaining true custom boat builders, Howard Custom Boats maintains and operates its entire facility (design, tooling, laminating and rigging shops) under one roof and all of our workers are full time employees and not piece workers. This enables us to insure that only the finest in quality, materials and labor go into every new Howard Custom Boat. We are one of the only manufactures that takes the extra step of running our designs(plugs) before we build a mold and put it in production. This extra costly step allows us to make subtle changes to the design that make our boats stand out from the crowd when it comes to performance. Just read our boat tests on any model and you can see that Howard Boats perform. We rely more on word of mouth and not advertising to sell our boats so making sure our boats are the best in their class is a must. We invite you to visit our 25,000 sq. ft. Valencia facility and see for yourself why we take the extra steps necessary to build your new Howard Custom Boat the only way we know….THE RIGHT WAY!.
