Default Tuffy Boats

Are they still making Tuffy Boats. I went to their web site and they don't have any models listed? I'm on the hunt for a 17 foot glass boat.

Fiberdome sold Tuffy to a guy who moved them to a different town. I really don't know who or where. I had the guys number last summer but doubt I could find it now.

I was interested in a Tuffy before buying my alumacraft last may due to them being almost the only place to get a big single console glass boat. I had inquired and never got the brochures that were supposed to be sent. All they did was send me a lost of their few dealers. The dealers didn't have a boat like i wanted in inventory and no one had hardly any interior pics of their boats. If its that hard to get info about buying one i can only imagine trying to get warranty work done. I think they make nice boats but marketing is non existant.

I would send Steve a pm vs posting it on the site. He seemed a bit miffed about the whole deal and don't know if he would publicly support Tuffy. Maybe I was reading more into it but thats the feeling I got.

If you are looking for a 17 foot glass tiller I would try Yar-Craft or Backtroller. I went with Yar-Craft 4 years ago and would do it again in a heart beat. I looked at Backtroller but at the time the gentleman that owned the company would not hang a Yamaha on one and with Yar-craft would and you can pick the color scheme that you prefer. Yar-Craft also uses vinyl ester resin in their glass so your worry about stress cracking and blistering is eliminated. Good Luck !

Wow, Steve has been with Tuffy boats since the 70ís. He started out guiding on Pelican Lake in northern Wisconsin when he was a kid. He sold a lot of people on their boats back then, even me. They made a good boat, plus the factory backing was outstanding at the time.

Been keeping an eye out since they sold too cause those X190's always have my eye. But just the way they talk on facebook it sounds like their main focus is restores.
