In 1948, G. Howard Lund built his first aluminum duck boat. The secret behind Lund’s success was in his craftsmanship. With an extreme attention to detail, Lund’s prototype offered a superior design and unparalleled engineering, creating greater fishability.
In 1961, Howard re-incorporated the company as Lund Metal Craft, Inc. and expanded in the fiberglass market. With the acquisition of Shell Lake Boat Company, Lund would now increase versatility with a product line up for family and sport.
