This illustration shows our triple taper chine with flat bottom (green arrow) and how other boats are built with a square chine (red arrow). The square chine boat illustrated with the red arrows causes water to rise up along the side of the boat for a wetter ride. The Triple Taper chine on our boats provides superior lift, a drier ride and allows the boat to roll into turns for top notch performance.
As opposed to a bass boat, which is mostly used on open water, a duck boat must be built to also navigate canals and channels and to maneuver among trees. About a half century ago, some of today’s most popular duck boat manufacturers began building aluminum, utility-style boats in Arkansas. The boat design was a hit with hunters because it allowed them to weave between trees and through swamps. Along with War Eagle, other major duck boat manufacturers that call Arkansas home are Xpress Boats of Hot Springs and SeaArk Boats of Monticello.
What also has kept the duck boat manufacturers tied to Arkansas is that many hunters consider the Natural State to have the best duck hunting across the globe. Although duck manufacturers hit choppy waters during the Great Recession, the industry is reporting that orders for boats are piling up and it needs workers. What Hunters WantIn addition to the shotgun, decoys and duck calls, the duck boat is a vital piece of equipment to a hunter. McCarley, 38, started hunting when he was 5 and averages about 50 hunting days a year and uses a Weldbilt boat. If a hunter hits a wave or choppy waters, the V-bow design will deflect the water and help keep the water out of the boat, Ward said.


A good, aluminum duck boat should last for years, if not a lifetime, said Henderson of SeaArk, which manufactures about 1,200 boats a year. ChallengesDuring the Great Recession, War Eagle had to deal with people keeping their wallets closed tight. Ward declined to say how many boats are manufactured a year, although, the company employs between 100 and 120 people.
Xpress does not release sales figures but Herndon said the company has seen a steady climb in sales over the years.

Our triple taper design allows the water to roll off the side differently to make a drier ride.
And over the decades, those manufacturers that launched the duck boats have stayed and grown in Arkansas.


Other Arkansas-based producers include Weldbilt Commercial Boats of Benton and Southfork Custom Boat Manufacturing Inc. The popular designs are about 16-21 feet long and have a V-shape on the bow, so if the boat scrapes a tree, it will dodge the blow and keep going.
The company, which has 180 employees, manufacturers its boats in Hot Springs and produces about 3,000 boats annually, with about 300 to 500 being duck boats, he said. And there seems to be a wave of young people coming into the market, which will require them to have their own boats, Ward said.
