Stan Hunter Boatbuilder is the only boatbuilding shop right on Lake Muskoka. By water, we're on Scarcliffe Bay. By road, we're off Highway 118 W, just 6 kms east of Port Carling. Drop in or call 705-764-0191.

Who rents our boats? Those who appreciate enduring, iconic quality.

Our Duke Playmates have been there for life’s most memorable moments and have starred in films as well. As long as you promise to treat our fleet members with the respect they deserve, we can put you in a piece of floating Muskoka history. Visit our Rentals page to reserve your boat today.

Boats for Corporate Groups and Teambuilding Activities

“Our European division said being part of the Duke Playmate boat flotilla was the highlight of the conference. Thank you.” McCain International

Want your corporate event to have a truly Muskoka touch? In July 2012, a group of European executives took turns being captain on a cruise using our entire fleet from Deerhurst Resort to the Nuit Blanche event in downtown Huntsville. The return trip under the stars was magical, and of all the special activities planned, this group said their sunset flotilla in antique Duke Playmates was the highlight of their Canadian stay.

Need a mahogany beauty to dress your set? Our boats have been featured in several films, and we just got a call from a Texas director looking for an antique utility boat. If you’re ever in Vancouver, check out the Fly Over Canada ride and yes, those are our boats featured in the glorious fall colour footage of the Ontario portion, right after Niagara Falls!
