  1. Alaskan Yachts

    Alaskan Yachts is a name well remembered in the yachting community for what seems like eons. Grand Alaskan was an excellent line of wooden yachts, on a par with the venerable Grand Banks woodies built in Hong Kong. In the early 1970s, however, that entire concept was effectively blown away by then-new fiberglass technology.

    Today’s Alaskan Yachts are even more stylish, comfortable, and seaworthy, built of fiberglass in Taiwan. In addition they sport luxurious staterooms and full-beam master suites, plus state-of-the-art engineering and technology in every quarter. Faster and high-tech with fiberglass, these ocean-going yachts boast the same superior levels of rugged style and performance as their namesakes. The company, opened in 1997 by Oviatt Marine as the “Grand Alaskan,” premiered its first prototype as a 60’ raised pilothouse trawler-yacht. Its salty styling, enriched and defined, was inspired by those Arthur DeFever-designed Grand Alaskan woodies produced by American Marine from 1963 to 1974.

    The modern Alaskan line presents its traditionally styled yachts from 56’ to 85’, plus new designs up to 100’ now on the drawing board. Forward thinking management has fostered hull forms as semi-displacement hulls; some with larger engines capable of planing speeds – a developing trend in the field. All Alaskan designs and molds are owned exclusively by Oviatt Marine.
