Henley | Aluminum Boat Manufacturing Logo

Welded Aluminum Boat Builder/Manufacturer

Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada

THE WORLDS TOUGHEST BOAT

Henley Aluminum Boats

“Professional Quality Boats” …

  • Private Individuals
  • Governments
  • Commercial Fishers
  • Commercial Divers
  • Building Contractors

We build the Safest, Most Durable, Welded Aluminum Boats on the Water.

What makes a Henley a Henley?

Henley is the oldest heavy aluminum boat manufacturer in the province of ontario..

To our knowledge we are the only company building heavy aluminum boats with lapstrake sides anywhere.

For over 40 years these Henley Boats have been designed and built without compromise.

We insist on building our boats using the best materials, the most modern welding methods and proven and approved designs.

  • Our lapstrake hull sides are stronger than plate.
  • Our full frame structure inside the hull on 16 inch centres ensures every boat is perfectly straight and rigid.
  • Our sturdy self draining floor is plug welded to the internal hull frame system.
  • Our built in fuel tanks are mounted below the self draining cockpit deck to keep the centre of gravity low.

When you compare a Henley boat to our competitors, we believe we offer more. Our designs are well thought out, our sizing is generous, and often foot for foot we can handle more horsepower.

Henley boats are designed & built to last decades. Backed by a lifetime warranty against hull cracking, we invite you to investigate why a Henley boat is the right choice for you.

Proven Design/Build Quality – Since 1972

What sets Henley apart from other aluminum boat building companies?

Henley the only builder in North America that employs the roll-form lapstrake process in a welded aluminum boat.

The benefits of the roll-form lapstrake process:

  • Lapstraking strengthens the aluminum at every bend, allowing us to use lighter gauge aluminum without sacrificing toughness.
  • It also makes for a drier ride in rough water as the lapstrake design forces water spray to the side, away from the boat and its occupants. Lapstraked sides give

Henley boats a unique and dynamic look.

  • Combined with a fully framed-in deck, we have created on of the safest, most durable and attractive welded aluminum boats on the water.

Every Henley boat comes with a LIFETIME warranty against cracking and is handcrafted to meet your specific needs.

All-Purpose Fishing Boats

Built for versatility, these boats can be used in both salt water and freshwater. They are designed to navigate many different types of waterways so you can pursue many different species of fish.

Aluminum Fishing Boats

Small lightweight and, durable trailer boats made of aluminum are most often used for freshwater fishing. Generally very simple craft, featuring riveted or welded aluminum hulls and bench seating, they can be operated in fish-friendly places - shallow water, coves, inlets - not many other boats can reach. Powered primarily by outboard engines, this type of boat offers both tiller and remote steering options.

Bass Boats

These boats are popular in coastal areas. They can float and run in water less than two feet deep and are ideal for fishing with two to three people on board.

Bay or Flats Boats

These family boats are the most popular in the runabout/sportboat category and are equipped with extra seats and forward access to the bow, a convenient spot to relax and sun.

Cabin Cruisers

Recreational by nature, Cabin Cruisers are generally equipped with cooking, sleeping and bathroom facilities and are ideal for those who want to feel the sun above and the ocean below.

Centre Consoles

These open fishing boats are built to take rough offshore waters in pursuit of ocean fish. Rod holders, outriggers and other gear are common fittings onboard.

Cuddy Cabins

Cuddy cabins are ideal for day cruising, watersports, and other on-the-water activities such as fishing and swimming.

Deck Boats

Deck boats have a wide deck to carry 6 to 10 or more passengers (like pontoons) but look and perform more like runabouts. They are powerful, too, making them excellent boats for skiing, tubing and wakeboarding

Dinghies

These small crafts are usually less than 10 feet in length, easy to carry on a car top or light enough to carry on board a cruiser. Great for use off the beach, or around the harbour.

Fish & Ski

This craft allows boaters to enjoy the two most popular on-water activities; fishing and skiing. This family fishing and recreational boat has enough power to pull a skier or two, and to get to the fishing spot in short order.

High Performance Boats

High performance boats are the sleek sports cars of the boating world, offering high speeds and precise handling to boaters who prefer their thrills full throttle. Marrying big horsepower with sleek hulls results in boats that are equally at home slicing through ocean swells or tearing up inland lakes. Cranking offshore or simply relaxing in a cove, performance boats deliver lots of smiles per hour.

Inflatables

Inflatable boats range in size from 8-foot dinghies for tenders to 30-foot high performance boats. These boats are suitable for saltwater and freshwater fishing, watersports and more.

Jet Boats

Like bowriders and deck boats, they offer comfortable seating and sunning areas, plus a speedy and exciting ride. They are distinguished from runabouts by their propulsion system, which is enclosed inside the hull.

Motor Yacht/Cruisers

Large boats equipped with powerful single or twin engines, these craft are ideal for ocean cruising, navigating large rivers or the Great Lakes, as well as entertaining at the dock, and can stay on the water for days.

Multi-Hull Power Boats

Featuring two or three hulls, rather than the more common single hull, multi-hull powerboats include designs for hardcore freshwater and saltwater fishing, as well as recreational and cruising, complete with expected amenities.

Personal Watercraft

Lightweight and manoeuvreable, personal watercraft are the perfect option for boaters looking for an exciting escape and enjoyable time on the water.

Pontoon Boats

Pontoon boats give families with younger boaters a secure place to enjoy the ride or toddle about when at anchor, thanks to wide decks and "play pen-like" side rails and gates. When equipped with larger engines they can be as quick as runabouts.

Sailboats

Sailboats differ from other types of boats in that they are propelled partly or entirely by wind; they use sails to transform the power of the wind into power that moves the boat through the water. The term sailboat covers a wide variety of sailing craft, each with its own characteristics and styles. In general, sailboats are distinguished by size, hull configuration, keel type, number of sails, use and purpose.

Ski/Wake/Surf Boats

Carve the morning glass on skis, soar over the wakes on a wakeboard, or surf an endless wave…ski/wake/surf boats are your gateway to fun!

Inboard Engine

Sterndrive engine.

Sportfishing Boats

These boats are great for pursuing large fish. Often equipped with sleeping berths, a galley for cooking and plumbing for convenience, they have the capacity to stay on the water for days

Trawlers

Facilities for sleeping, cooking and plumbing provide boating fun for weekends on the water with family and friends. They can handle big rivers, lakes and oceans on moderate days.

Walkarounds

These boats may be the ultimate family fishing boats and are most popular in coastal waters, large bays and the Great Lakes where anglers pursue salmon or offshore ocean species. They are equipped with rod holders, livewells and steps to the forward deck to make it easy to follow a big fish around the boat.

SUPERIOR HULL DESIGN

Why catamarans.

Catamaran hull designs are superior because they provide stability, speed, and comfort. They have a wider beam, reducing roll and providing a more stable platform. The two hulls also increase surface area, reducing drag and resulting in higher speeds. Finally, the separation of the hulls provides more interior space, leading to greater comfort for passengers.
