Our Mission Is To Create Memories.

That’s what we’re all about. Whether we’re working on a cool new design, adding an innovative feature, or squeezing in that extra bit of value, all we’re thinking about is providing you with the ultimate boating experience that creates memories that will last a lifetime.

Focus on value:

We only offer features or services that offer a far greater perceived value to a customer than perceived cost.

Wow our customers:

We believe in going out of our way to ensure that our clients' expectations are not only met but exceeded.


We treat one another with respect and communicate openly. We foster collaboration while maintaining individual accountability. We encourage the best ideas to surface from anywhere within the organization. We appreciate the value of multiple perspectives and diverse expertise.


We seek innovations and ideas that will enhance our customers' experience through added features, increased functionality, or simpler operation. We are not discouraged by those who tell us it cannot be done, but motivated to prove them wrong.


We invest our money in things that really matter and we believe that frugality breeds resourcefulness, self-sufficiency and invention.


We believe that a good sense of humour is essential to success. We encourage people to have fun in the workplace, but never at the expense of productivity or customer satisfaction.

Learn about our past

...as Duhamel and Dewar, a little tire outlet in Sudbury, barely making it past payday and exchanging tires for catchy jingles, all the way to being Legend Boats, an international boat manufacturing, wholesaling and retailing company, the Legend Boats Headquarters in Whitefish is chock full of exciting history!

Did you know?

Duhamel and Dewar in Whitefish is the Legend Boats Headquarters. Every Legend you see across Canada came right from our Shop.
Legend Boats has nearly 60 Dealers across Canada.
It was decided by a coin toss that Duhamel would go before Dewar in our name.
When Vic Duhamel and Carl Dewar were still in the tire business, they met Stompin'Tom Connors at a bar, where they got to talking and worked out a good trade. A new set of tires for Tom and a catchy jingle for TireTown, you may remember that one! 'Listen to our ad'
While they were in the RV business, Duhamel and Dewar ran a campaign to fly people to Whitefish from all over Canada just to test drive their RVs. Naturally, people were skeptical that they would be forced to buy something, so Vic Duhamel and Carl Dewar picked the customers up from the airport and immediately handed them their reimbusement cheque for their flight, hotel and everything, just to put them at ease.

Grow With Us

At Legend, there are endless possibilities for knowledge, growth and progression. We will do whatever it takes to make you the absolute best person you can be. Every year, we take selected Team Members to conferences all over North America, including Dreamforce in San Francisco, and MDCE in Orlando. Our Sales People are enrolled in highly respected sales training programs and all of our Shop and Service staff have the option of attending Mercury University to become Merc Certified. We don't believe in being good enough, we believe in being excellent, superb, fantastic and having that all-around WOW factor!

Forget Performance Reviews

Yearly reviews are dreaded by staff and management, take so much time to accumulate the needed information, always end up being full of negativity and resentment and just don’t contribute to the overall growth and well-being of staff.

At Legend, we firmly believe in bi-weekly Performance Previews. This is a casual sit-down chat between the Team Member and the Team Leader to talk about the past couple of weeks: what was good, what needs work, and this is also an opportunity for the Team Member to tell their Leader exactly what they need to accomplish their goals. This has been widely accepted throughout the company and everyone seems happier because of it!

Have Fun With Us

We're always cooking up something new and fun for our Team Members. It's very important to take a step back from the daily routine to just let loose and bond with some people you doin't normally work closely with. Whether it be our Legend Amazing Race our Rockstar Christmas Party, Lunchtime Tournaments or our most recent Winter-palooza, our staff keep having fun and growing closer together because of it.


Did we mention we’re awesome? Because the World has. At Legend, we don’t settle for OK or good enough. We’re annoyingly overachieving and we love it that way.
