I had long envisioned a boat that didn’t exist. I searched and searched for the answer. Everywhere we turned was a dead end. I've been a boat guy all my life, from pontoons and canoes to drift boats. There are a lot of boat options out there, but none could do everything I wanted. As I searched for the perfect boat, I couldn’t help but thinking, “You’re doing it wrong!”. The only solution was to design our own watercraft. After two years of extensive R&D Flycraft was born.
It has been exciting bringing this product to market and to see the response from people in the US. We are now looking for support from Kickstarter backers to help us increase our production quantities and go international!
Have a scrawny friend? Are YOU the scrawny friend? Weighing only 98lbs, anyone can transport a Flycraft Stealth. Whether you’re loading the boat into the back of a truck by yourself, or carrying the boat a mile to your favorite fishery with a buddy, the lightweight design of the stealth has revolutionized what can be done with a full-sized fishing craft.
What does the trunk of a Prius, bed of a Tacoma, and roof of a Subaru all have in common? They can transport a Flycraft. Weighing only 98 lbs, this boat can easily be loaded on any roof rack or the bed of any pick up truck. Dont have a pick-up or roof rack? Deflate the boat and throw it in the trunk. Any vehicle can transport a Flycraft.
The Flycraft Stealth was built from the ground up with one thing in mind. Fishing. The minimalist design prevents your line from tangling and the reverse lean bar provides stability to launch 100 foot casts in the roughest of water. With the fishability of a drift boat, the maneuverability of a kayak, the durability of a whitewater raft, and the weight of a kick boat, why are you fishing out of anything else?
This boat was made to get you where you need to go, no matter what rough obstacles may be in your path.
Love to travel? How great would it be to bring your own drift boat on your next adventure? Now you can. Mexico, Alaska, the Amazon… these boats have flown everywhere. Pack the rubber in one box, the frame in a second, and your boat now flies where you do.
The Flycraft Stealth is perfect for that sneaky local stream with no boat ramp or your classic big western river. Its shallow draft and class II whitewater rating will help you explore even further. Pair with your small gas or electric outboard of choice (30 lbs or less) to venture out on the ocean or that nearby lake.
We’re finding new uses for the boat every day. Its been a hot tub on the banks of the South Fork, a hammock in the woods above the Henry’s Fork, a shelter in the Alaskan Backcountry, and a sleeping pad across much of the West. How do you use your Flycraft Stealth?
Risks and challenges
We feel extremely prepared to deliver results from this campaign to backers in a timely manner. We have experience building these boats and have worked out all the kinks in production, shipping, packaging, and shipping. We feel we are a well oiled machine, but now with the help of Kickstarter backers we will be able to up our production to the next level.
We have taken all the necessary steps to secure, deliver, and build all boats. Increasing our production capabilities is obviously a huge undertaking with a lot of moving parts. There are various suppliers, contractors, and tradesman involved in assembling all the components that go into making a Flycraft. Therefore there are a lot of people that will be relied on to perform their functions. Production set backs are something we have seen from time to time, but we feel that we have also streamlined this and provided more than ample time to fulfill rewards to backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
