Inshore Elegance,
Offshore Attitude

For over 42 years KenCraft Challenger boats have been designed and built for the discriminating sportsman that demands a full featured, quality no-wood, no-rot constructed boat. With flared bows and deep gunwales, our boats were designed for the serious fisherman as well as the family cruiser.



It’s all in the Ride

The BayRider was designed
to be different from the beginning. A best-in-class skiff that offers comfort as well as family affordability, while offering the ability to turn like a V hull on the water. You will not find a more versatile, fun, and safe boat for your family.



The Angler’s Adventure

Our Bay Series boats are built to the exact same standards as our BayRider models with a focus on inshore and nearshore fishing. Whether it is redfish or drum, catfish or stripers, the Bay Series models are designed for the serious angler with the features you expect. The BayRider Bay Series is the ultimate fishing platform because it has front and rear live wells, insulated fish and storage boxes, a large foredeck for casting, and plenty of rod storage.

All of our boats are PowerMatched® Exclusive with Yamaha Outboards for performance.
