  • About Powerquest Boats
  • History of Powerquest Boats

    During the summer of 1978, on beautiful Hess Lake in western Michigan, Todd Kamps and Kevin Hirdes became acquainted when they discovered that they both enjoyed water skiing. Almost immediately, a friendship developed that extended beyond their skis.


    Several years later, Todd was working for a marine yacht manufacturer in Grand Haven, Michigan. In his spare time he began designing, building and testing an 18' fiberglass sport boat. Once Kevin caught wind of the project he lent a hand with the finishing touches. After countless hours of testing to see how well the boat performed, Todd and Kevin began talking about forming their own business. A company that would produce high performance sport boats.


    From day one, August 16, 1983, Todd and Kevin kept their focus on what it would take to be successful: Do not compromise on quality; use the best raw materials available; build each boat as if it was for yourself; and surround yourself with quality people who share your vision.
