Between 1938 and 1971, Lee Craft Boat Company built and sold over 2,870 wood and fiberglass boats. Ole Lee Jr.'s love for the craft developed early on when as a boy he helped his dad, Ole Lee Sr., an immigrant from Norway, build small fishing boats in his spare time on Flathead Lake.

A few years out of high school, with some experience under his belt, and a small amount of money, Ole Lee, Jr. put his business plan into motion. Ole purchased a waterfront lot on Somers Bay and erected sales and storage buildings. His first sale was a custom 13' fishing boat that sold for $125.00. Getting the business off the ground was not easy for Ole but he never gave up, working hard to develop his craft. After a few years, word began to spread throughout the West and Midwest about the high quality of boats being built on the west shore of Flathead Lake.

By 1940, Lee Craft boat sales were doing very well; the staff was working double shifts to keep up with demand. Ole expanded his showroom and began offering outboard and inboard fishing boats and runabouts in various lengths and models. By 1954, Ole started to phase fiberglass boats into his inventory, and wind down the production of his wooden boats. Finally, after 33 years in the business Ole decided it was time retire and spend more time with his family, and on his other interests. Ole passed away in 2003, but his boats live on.

Condition1964 Lee Craft 17' boat with Gator trailer and includes a transplanted later model MerCruiser w/140 HP. This classic boat and trailer underwent a full restoration about 10 years ago and has been seldomly used. It sports custom crafted locking storage compartments under the rear seats and a dual battery set up. It has also been winterized when not in use, and has always been stored inside since restoration in moderate California temperatures. A custom made matching red boat cover is included. This boat was used in the making of the 1988 John Candy/Dan Akroyd movie 'The Great Outdoors', filmed at Bass Lake California, but unfortunately all but a moment was edited out by final cut. Boat can pull a skier, wake-board or inner-tube. The boat shows minimal wear and would present itself well at a vintage/classic boat show.
