About River Raptor

World class aluminum jetboats & jet boat systems

Building  the best shallow water capable boats anywhere.

We ensure the core values that built Raptor Design & Engineering continue to guide the design and production of our watercraft.

  • We believe in quality…Every boat that bears the River Raptor name must meet our rigorous standard of excellence in design, fabrication and assembly.
  • We believe in performance…Each of our boat models is intensively engineered and purposefully designed to provide a superior experience on the water. Whether it’s a recreational model or a commercial model, each boat design is created to excel at what it does.
  • We believe in durability…Every River Raptor is heavy-duty…these are not mass manufactured boats. Each is built with the finest craftmanship and absolute best components to endure the test of time.
  • We believe in value…When you buy a River Raptor…you get what you pay for. Our goal is to exceed our customer’s expectations.
  • We believe in service…When the phone rings…we answer it. We do our absolute best to provide exceptional customer support and continue to build relationships with our customers after the sale.
  • Our Team Has One Mission…Build the best shallow water capable boats anywhere. Period!

When Quality Matters…Choose A River Raptor!

  • Superior Design – Our watercraft are designed, tested and manufactured by a mechanical engineering company…each boat has its own 3D model. We are so much more than just an aluminum fabrication shop and it shines through in the performance and aesthetics of our products.
  • Superior Fabrication – When you combine precision cnc laser cutting and bending with highly skilled aluminum craftsmen, you get the best aluminum hull possible. Our fabricators take tremendous pride in fulfilling the company mission of being the best!
  • Superior Systems – We don’t just build boats…we build marine vehicles. Today’s boat isn’t just a hull and a drivetrain…it’s a marriage of other complex systems…power distribution, plumbing, lighting, and at times, communications and imaging. The way our team of marine technicians integrate these systems is second to none. We bring new meaning to the phrase “clean installation” and provide a source for complex turnkey packages.
  • Superior Finishes – Don’t settle for a boat sprayed on a shop floor with inferior coatings…We have a state-of-the-art down draft paint facility within our shop and use top quality Sikkens coatings on every boat. The finishes on our boats look better and last longer!
  • Superior Options – Our engineering team provides our customers with options that are rarely found elsewhere…inboarded rigid inflatable hulls, remotely actuated stomp grates, hull integrated lighting and boarding ladders, etc…we keep making our products better and more innovative…to exceed expectations of what a shallow water aluminum boat can be!


We service & repair all makes of aluminum watercraft with BRP Rotax & Indmar engines.
