As a local business competing for a small piece of the pie in an industry consumed by global giants, Boathouse stands in stark contrast to the ethics and business model of the big brands. We design and manufacture our entire product line here in Philadelphia, USA, in our own factory. We directly and indirectly give back to our local Philadelphia community to help strengthen the US economy. We are a small business that employs 200 full time craftspeople, designers, graphic artists, customer service and sales reps in our vertically integrated North Philadelphia factory.
