The Starcraft Boats of Today

Today’s Starcraft Boats are a company run by the same family that started it all back in 1903, with durable galvanized steel rowboats.  For five generations and counting, our family has been dedicated to sharing the wonder of boating by creating the finest watercraft that money can buy. That’s really all there is to it.

     We love boating, and we want to share it with the world. That is our commitment. That is our heritage.

During the 1960s, Harold Schrock helped pioneer the manufacture of fiberglass watercraft, beginning a long history of continuous improvements to fiberglass hull design and a dedication to providing exciting runabouts and deck boats for families and watersport enthusiasts. Four generations of the Schrock family have helped lead the industry in quality and innovation — and most importantly, value. There’s a sense of pride at Starcraft Boats that you won’t find anywhere else.

The sun’s warmth, the sounds of laughter, the delight of clean, fresh air. Our senses come alive on the water, which is why every Starcraft Pontoon boat is built to spoil you in sumptuous luxury. Plush carpeting, ergonomic seating and standard Bimini tops on many models let you enjoy all the comforts of home – even when you’re going 40 mph.

Starcraft Pontoon boats are designed to be comfortable without sacrificing performance. You’ll be able to get a good deal of power for most boating activities while also enjoying spacious floor plans and luxurious seating.

There’s enough room for family, friends, and all the supplies you need for a fun day on the water. Enjoy the latest and greatest in boating technology while you’re cruising through the waters of South Florida.

Starcraft’s all-new HMX option brings jaw-dropping performance to pontoons. HMX tubes provide better lift, less surface drag, higher speeds, quicker planning and a much tighter turning radius, so you can turn back and recover a downed skier faster, or just play in the wake.

Starcraft Boat: Sport Boat Subcategories

Starcraft Boats are among the global leaders when it comes to water sports boating. Sport Boats are one of the most diverse categories of Starcraft boats, featuring three subcategories:

Starcraft Boat Fiberglass Runabouts

Also known as bowriders, these boats feature especially pointy bows, which helps reduce friction where the fiberglass meets the water. This design slightly reduces the available room for seating, but it makes up for superior performance. Since the bow slices through the water, you can expect these boats to deliver fast acceleration and responsive handling.

Starcraft Deck Boats

Deck boats aren’t quite as nimble as runabouts, but they still dreamy performance for captains who know how to handle their vessels. The bow of a deck boat is slightly wider, which leaves some extra room for passengers at the front of the boat. This design is popular among people who like to lay out and soak up the sun while enjoying a cool breeze from high speeds.

Starcraft Boat Crossovers

Just as crossover SUVs are becoming increasingly popular, people are starting to realize how unique crossover boats are. For people who can’t decide between a bowrider boat and a center console boat, crossovers offer some of both types best features. This is for people who value seating, performance, and convenience at the same time. These boats are made for anyone who doesn’t want to sacrifice fishing for other activities or sacrifice agility for size.

We’ve met people who would find a way to fish from just about any kind of boat, but Starcraft fishing boats take the experience to a whole new level. These aluminum fishing boats are accessible enough for those who only fish casually, yet sophisticated enough for serious tournament fishing. From simple, no-frills fishing boats to sophisticated pieces of technology, you can find the right vessel to match your style. Next time you gear up for a day on the water, you’ll find a spot for all of your tools.
