Westwinn Group, the Canadian-based builder of Kingfisher, Jetcraft and Harbercraft boats, is reporting strong results from recent Western boat shows.

“Buyers are excited with the upgrades we made to our popular 16- and 18-foot Falcon line. Based on feedback from our angler community, we zeroed in on fishability, value and overall performance,” company president Andrew Klopak said in a statement.

“The new 20-foot Discovery series, featuring our console-forward design and class-leading storage, also struck a chord with buyers,” he added. “Buoyed by an improving economy, healthy fish stocks, together with the performance advantages that heavy-gauge aluminum boats offer, the robust return of the offshore buyer is also very exciting.”

Westwinn Group, based in Vernon, British Columbia, distributes its three welded aluminum brands through its network of 40 dealers across North America.
