About Dargel Boats, Inc.
It was 1933 when Mr.
Dargel built his first wooden boat that he used personally to fish
the Lower Laguna Madre, when his neighbor purchased it he built
another and as the trend continued he soon realized that there was
enough demand for quality built fishing boats that he and his father
phased out of farming and in 1937
started Dargel Boats on the very land they had farmed for years.
Since 1937 Dargel Boats, Inc. has been building, testing and
improving shallow water fishing boats making us the oldest boat
manufacturer in Texas and the second oldest in the nation. We have
found that success on the water starts with quality materials,
exceptional workmanship and extreme attention to detail. We work
very hard to insure that the highest quality and consistent design
go into each boat we build.
Our boats have evolved through research and development to have, what
we feel, is the most fuel efficient, smooth and stable ride available
in a shallow water boat. The wide beam and Hydrolift tunnel design
of our Skout Series offers access to fishing spots our competition
can only dream of. The Dargel KAT is our latest design and has
been called one of the most innovative boat designs this century,
one of the smoothest, dryest, and shallowest riding catamarans on
the market make it one of the most versatile boat on the water with
the ability to fish the shallowest flats, cross the roughest bays,
and head offshore all from the same boat.
We package our boats with more standard
features than other boat manufacturers to insure that you, our
customer, get the most bang for your hard earned buck. We're
fishermen so we know what an angler needs to maximize time fishing
and minimize hassle, so that's how we sell our boats, our boats are
serious fishing machines for serious
anglers that want to easily get in and out of extremely shallow
water without damaging important sea grasses or vital habit.
When purchasing a boat one of the most important considerations
is warranty, insurance companies simply won't cover manufacturer
defects and if the manufacturer does not stand behind their product,
or even worse is out of business, it leaves you with the burden of
getting your boat repaired, and serious repairs can easily cost
thousands of dollars. Your new Dargel Boat will come standard with a
limited life time warranty on the floor and transom and ten
years on the hull, and more importantly your new Dargel
boat will come with over 70 years of history supporting that
warranty ensuring your peace of mind that we will be here in the
unfortunate event that you do have a warranty claim.
Dargel Boats uses only the highest quality materials, parts, and
accesories on every boat we build, combine that with over 75 years
of design and fabrication experience and you can rest assured that
your new Dargel Boat will be built to the highest standards
