The Wooldridge commitment to build the best go-anywhere
boats for sportsmen began almost 100 years ago with the innovative spirit
and passion for the outdoors of company founder Glen Wooldridge (1896-1986).
The Wooldridge boat lineup selection now includes outboard and inboard jets and
outboard prop models ranging from 16' to 27'. Windshield
boats, open boats, cuddy cabins, rescue and fish and wildlife boats are all available.
You can check out many of the models and options at their website.
The Wooldridge Alaskan is the super-shallow running,
sports car type of the Wooldridge Fleet. It doesn't take a lot of power
for this agile, sure-footed boat to display incredible handling and superior
shallow water performance. Check out the formed ribs on the semi-V hull
and the exclusive Wooldridge tunnel pioneered two decades ago.
This boat gets on step quickly and negotiates through
narrow twisting waterways to get at the best of fishing. Available in 16'
and 17'6" lengths, as an open boat with console or tiller and windshield
model with large walk-thru design and broad recessed, self-draining bow
for easy access.
Taller and wider than the Alaskan is
big brother, the AKII. It is the master of performance when it comes to optimum
handling, shallow water performance and hauling a load with modest horsepower.
You can select models of 18'6" or 20'6", with the Wooldridge
jet tunnel, of course. A 45 gallon fuel tank in the 20-footer extends cruising
range and time afield. You can get the Wooldridge AKII in windshield (check
out the recessed, self-draining bow), open tiller and open console models
for outboard jet or prop power. On the 20' there's also a removable
hardtop available with forward canvas enclosure for more headroom and great

Wooldridge has stepped up the game with the all new Wooldridge XL Sportjet. Powered by a 200HP Mercury Optimax, you have all of the great features of the XL but in an inboard package.
This is the boat that has earned a rave review from owner (TJM on the Alaska Powerboating Forum). The overwhelming interest in this first boat prompted TJM to lend the boat to Marita Sea and Ski in Anchorage for boaters to check out July 19-22. It also showed in Fairbanks this summer. Go to Wooldridge
for more info on this fantastic boat! You can also read about it in their newsletter
