cultural fundamentals


There are many boats made of wood but there are few borne from wood. Superior strength and beauty are drawn from that which only nature can provide, coalesced to shape boats of unrivaled prestige.


An eye for the unordinary and the patience to hand form metals – for function or adornment. Fabrication, welding, grinding and polishing; customization shaped from your unique style at the hands of our skilled metal craftsmen.


Your desire for control and excitement are melded together in a well thought out selection of engine components, upgrades and accessories.

Paint & Varnish

Mirror finishes in wood, protecting your investment inside and out, are painstakingly planned and executed to perfection. Whether paint, varnish or a combination designed to suit your tastes, your boat will visually move past ‘the others on the lake’ and shine as the piece of artwork that it is. All this and a lifetime guarantee.*


Premium substrates are hand selected and perfectly assembled to create your custom seating arrangements and accentuate detailing. Unrivaled comfort and styling envelop your one-in-the-world watercraft.


Legacy craftsmanship meets the electronics of the millennium. Where there’s a will, there’s a way; keeping you connected, comfortable and secure when adventuring on the water.

I wanted something unique—unique to the point of being one of a kind, and this is where Van Dam really excels. If you want a boat like your brother-in-law’s, don’t bother with Van Dam; but if you want something truly unique, take a trip to Boyne City.”
