Bentz Boats

building superior quality aluminum boats since 1972

Bentz Boats was founded more than 40 years ago in Lewiston, Idaho when our first aluminum jet boat was built. Through the years of personal use, customer feedback and innovative designs, Bentz Boats has acquired a domestic and international clientele because of its superior boat design and commitment to quality. Attention to detail and a high quality build standard gives each Bentz Boat superior performance, high degree of safety and minimal maintenance.

Bentz pioneered features such as the sled-shaped bow, forward and center pilot station, short stroke mechanical stick steering and delta pad bottoms to name a few. These features contribute to their boats superior handling, quick planing and shallow running capabilities. Bentz offers recreational, commercial, government and US Coast Guard certified passenger vessels for fresh and saltwater use. Each boat is custom built to order based on customer specifications and needs.

Bentz Boats’ legendary hull designs are available in boats 20 feet and larger, offered in open sleds to conventional builds, custom designed for fresh or saltwater use and powered with outboards, sportjets, gasoline or diesel engines. Bentz Boats has been the industry standard and although often imitated, never duplicated.
