It all began in the Clarkston, Washington, shop of legendary boatbuilder Ernie Duckworth in the late 1960ís as he began building a couple of rugged welded aluminum jet boats for running the demanding whitewater of the nearby Snake River Hells Canyon. His rugged designs soon caught the eye of fellow boaters, and the Duckworth boats brand was soon developing its legendary loyal following.
Today, Duckworth boat Works, Inc. ("DBW") manufactures and distributes through independent marine dealers Duckworth boats brand welded aluminum fishing, sport and commercial boats. Duckworth boats include a complete line of 17-24 foot inboard jet, outboard, sterndrive and specialty watercraft for shallow-draft river running and deep-V bluewater use, with a full range of fit and finish options.

Committed to the ongoing development of Duckworth boats, DBW has focused its efforts on creating a management, production, distribution and financial foundation for significant expansion of Duckworth boats production capacity and market presence. In September 2000, the owners of Duckworth boat Works and Weldcraft Marine Industries, Inc. combined their efforts with the creation of Renaissance Marine Group, Inc. ("RMG").
