Allison Boats

Allison Boats began in 1955 when Paul Allison built the first boat from wood.  The early 1960's he built fiberglass boats and won races from Miami, FL to Lincoln, NE.  His son, Darris, built the first high performance bass boat in 1969-1970, which created the now billion dollar+ bass boat industry.  Allison Boats are all original designs, never any copies.  Because of the exclusive hull design, Allison Boats gives the customer a boat with great handling capability, a smooth ride and up to 3 times the fuel mileage of other outboard boats!
