By The Numbers

Starcraft has been building aluminum boats since 1903. Today, we craft our full line of aluminum, fiberglass and pontoon boats at a one-of-a-kind manufacturing facility in New Paris, Indiana. Here’s a look at the plant by the numbers:

  • Today, we have more than 600,000 square feet of indoor production space.
  • Overall, our site occupies 73 acres of land.
  • We employ more than 500 wonderful people, many of whom have been with us for more than 20 or even 30 years.
  • Our skilled and talented employees build more than 10,500 boats every single year.
  • To craft those boats, our New Paris plant uses more than 9,000,000 pounds of aluminum each year.
  • We are privileged to work with a family of nearly 400 professional dealers, located in 26 countries all around the world.
  • Boats are shipped to most dealers by our own fleet of 30 trucks.
  • In 2015, those 30 trucks drove more than 2,800,000 miles across North America delivering boats.
  • Between our 6 brands – Smoker Craft, Starcraft, Sylvan, SunChaser, Starweld and American Angler – we offer 59 models of fishing boats, along with 27 models of fiberglass runabouts and an amazing 146 different models of pontoons!
