North Carolina-based US Watercraft has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with Arkansas, US-based- SeaArk Marine to utilize the complete portfolio of its commercial fire fighting, military, survey, and work boats.

“The SeaArk Marine models will be the marquee products for US Watercraft,” says Randy Borges, managing director of US Watercraft. “We are excited to offer new builds of the highly respected and proven designs, as well as providing service to the many dedicated SeaArk Marine customers.”

Dauntless and Commander

Additional excursion, cargo, and shallow-draft work boat models are also included in the agreement. The Hunt design office will consult with US Watercraft on engineering and design for all next-generation SeaArk Marine models.

US Watercraft specialises in the design and manufacturing of commercial & recreational composite & welded aluminium and steel vessels.
