The mission of Gravitas Drift Boats is to provide you with a custom made boat that is both beautiful in appearance and highly functional on the water.


Creating beautiful boats that are enjoyable to spend time in is a given.  When I enter the shop each day my vision and goal is to create a boat that is also highly adjustable for whatever situation you may find yourself in.


Gravitas Drift Boats started with one man working in a small shop.  Very little has changed.  I typically work on only two boats at any given time allowing me to focus on quality as opposed to quantity.


   Welcome to Gravitas Drift Boats.  I’m happy you’re here.  I’m proud to be a custom wooden drift boat builder located in Missoula, Montana.  My hope is that you find this website answers all your questions on why you should purchase a custom, handcrafted, wooden drift boat.

   I understand that you have several manufacturers and materials to choose from.  Some of these have stood the test of time, while others have not.  Bottom line, you simply can’t go wrong with purchasing a classic handcrafted wooden drift boat that was designed and built to meet your specific needs. I guarantee your beautiful Gravitas Drift Boat will turn heads at the boat launch and make you the envy of everyone you know.  Best of all, with a little care, your Gravitas Drift Boat will give you many years of pleasure and be built well enough to pass down to the next generation.

   Please have a look around, and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to drop me a line.
