StanCraft Wooden Boat Company was founded back in 1933 by W.H. “Billy” Young and his son Stanley C. Young. Stanley later married Delores and had three children Joyce, Syd and Bruce. The company was originally built on the shores of Caroline Point, Flathead Lake in Lakeside, Montana. It was Flathead Lakes first boat building factory. A regional builder, Stan created some of the most iconic designs in boating history. The 22′ Torpedo in 1945 was a true head turner for the time.
