About Legend Boats

It all started out with two friends; Vic Duhamel and Carl Dewar who opened a tire dealership called Duhamel & Dewar in Sudbury back in 1968. In 1976, they moved their business to Whitefish, Ontario and expanded the company to sell recreational vehicles and boats. Later, in 1986 the pair launched Legend Boats, which became their primary business, focused on delivering the absolute best value in the marine industry and making it as easy as possible to get involved in boating. Over the years, innovative design concepts like full stand up tops, rounded windshields, and rear bench seating, helped shape the Canadian marine industry. Today, Legend Boats continues to pursue their mission to create memories, led by the next generation of managers, Marc Duhamel, Jamie Dewar and Jeff Duhamel. They grew up in the boating industry, mentored by their fathers Vic and Carl, and have always been involved in all facets of the business. From design to production, to sales and marketing, the next generation of management has taken Vic and Carl’s vision and added their twist. Their continued focus on offering the best value and trying to impress their customers has helped get Legend Boats to where it is today – a successful boat company that helps thousands of Canadians experience boating and create memories that will last a lifetime.  To learn more about Legend, visit www.legendboats.com.
