Welcome to the West Side Boat Shop!

Thank you for your interest in West Side Boat Shop. Being a small custom boat manufacturing shop we pride ourselves in the quality, craftsmanship, durability, construction and practicality of each of the boats we build. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, river runner, racer or touring kayaker, we build a boat specifically for your needs. We are paddlers as well as you are, and understand the demands placed on equipment, especially boats.

We know what stresses and strains are placed on boats, where and how to reinforce these areas because we paddle all the boats we build.

We have grown into a specialty shop of sorts. We build kayaks to your specifications. Your boat will be built just for you. It can be the color you like, the construction that will be best for your application, you can even have your name laminated in the boat!

Unlike other kayak manufacturers all our boats are fully outfitted and ready to paddle. Seats are installed, sanded perfectly smooth, and adjustable footrests are in place. Depending upon construction, most boats are furnished with full length foam walls.

All boats can be shipped direct to your city, quickly, easily and inexpensively.

We sell a complete line of kayaks and all related accessories, call us for your first, or next kayak. You'll love the way your new boat paddles... and we guarantee it!
