Unyielding Quality

Lightning Yachts is a company founded by two charter boat captains that wanted to build a true tournament fishing machine, not another “condo with a cockpit”. Beginning in rented space on Harkers Island, and now in a state of the art facility at the Jarrett Bay Marine Industrial Park in Beaufort, we hand craft each boat as if it would be our own. With our fishing experience we know what is needed from a tournament boat and build it into ours.

We currently have projects from a 64’ battlewagon to a 19’ flats skiff. Being a true custom builder, there are no standard models or option lists to choose from. Each and every boat is a unique creation, tailored to fit the customer’s desires exactly. We can build any size or style of boat you can imagine. The only thing you won’t have any say so over is the quality of workmanship throughout the project. We are proud of our work and will not compromise our reputation by building a sub-standard boat. If your number one concern is price, we would be happy to refer you to another builder who can offer you a “bargain” boat, but we will not! We want to continue to be the leaders in the state of the art of sportfish boat building.
