A Hilmark Boat will most definitely turn heads. She's not just a boat, but a functional work of art. So grab your oars, hoist the sails and turn back time ...

Hilmark Boats is proud to offer boats based on the original wooden boats design off the vintage "Tyee Row Boat", used throughout the 1900's in Campbell River, BC. Canada.   Hilmark Boats continues a fine tradition of Wooden Boat Building, featuring Canadian Pacific North West Coast Wood. The original Tyee wooden boats were built by Ned Painter from the 1920's until 1932 and then again in the 1950's            View video

        New Product Information:

In 2001 Hilmark Boats. reintroduced the traditional all wood handmade row boat built in Campbell River from 1918 to 1952. During the past nine years we have had many requests to copy our boat and produce it in fibreglass.

Hilmark Boats. contracted a production facility whose staff has 87 years combined experience in building fibreglass boats.

As of this month we will be adding to our line of boats a 14'4" fibreglass row boat.  These boats will be trimmed in either mahogany, sapele, douglas fir or yellow cedar with one rowing station and oars.

Selling price for this Fibreglass model will be $6,990.00 Canadian

Canadian flag

The Canadian flag does not fly because the wind moves past it. The Canadian flag flies from the last breath of each military member who has died protecting it. Canadian soldiers don't fight because they hate what's in ront of them.
They fight because they love what's behind them." Re-Post this if you support our troops......
