Full Composite Construction

Cape Craft boats are 100% wood free. All boats are made from 100% composite materials such as resin, woven roving, coosa, and foam stringers.


Our boats are installed with dash panels designed and built by Cape Craft’s staff to ensure the highest quality for each panel.

In-House Upholstery

All upholstery is done in-house by Cape Craft’s highly skilled crew with some of the best materials available on-hand. All cushions are made using a stain-resistant vinyl and anti-microbial foam for long-term maintenance free use and bimini tops are created using a water-repellent fabric that water rolls off.
