We have purchased two, 14’ aluminum skiffs from  Silverback Marine- used as tender boats for our bigger vessels in remote Alaska.  Top notch communication throughout the process to ensure that the boat would fit the application we needed them for.  I appreciated the detail and insight, and it's clear the sheer passion those at Silverback have for boat building.    Silverback has also performed a few smaller aluminum projects for us with ease and quick turnaround time when it was greatly appreciated.  It’s always a pleasure dealing with those at Silverback.

Thanks! We'll be in touch soon.

When our yacht club needed a new work boat built I called and talked with several boat building manufacturers. One stood out from the rest and it was Ian at Silverback Marine. Ian took the time to draw up several different renditions of work boats for us and incorporated the changes that we wanted to accommodate our specific needs. In the end the work boat he built us exceeded all of our expectations.

The powder coat finish not only looks outstanding but it has held up very well to the elements.  Ian kept us updated through the entire build process sending pictures and asking for input along the way as per additional modifications that we requested throughout the process.  Ian was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to anybody wanting a quality built boat!!

Ian still checks in with us from time to time to make sure it is still living up to our expectations, which we are happy to say that it is. I am in the process of wanting a new fishing boat and I look forward to working with silverback marine to build it for me!

I was out on the water last weekend and was admiring my Silverback Marine Orca 16.  After having the pleasure of using it for fishing, water sports and cruising for well over a year, I feel like I have a much better ability to evaluate its capabilities, durability and performance.  First of all, it is an incredibly seaworthy design for a 16' boat even when there are four standing and moving around in it.  The fabrication/welding and attention to every detail continues to impress the more time I spend on the water with it.  In addition to its performance/seaworthiness,


I must also tip my hat to Silverback Marine as they continue to reach out and care about their product long after it has left the shop.  They show a genuine interest in any user suggestions to improve on the design and/or performance and fortunately for me, I haven't been able to come up with any.  

If you are interested in an extremely well-built custom aluminum boat where the fabricator will care about it long after it leaves their shop, I would highly recommend Silverback Marine.
