About Legend Boats

Our Story


In 1968, two young friends, Vic Duhamel and Carl Dewar decided to start a business. They didn’t have much to start with, but agreed to share everything that came their way. Over the years, they sold products ranging from tires to RVs before realizing how much they loved helping people onto the water and into the boating lifestyle. That is when they decided that selling boats would become an important part of their business. There were two big issues that they found. Buying a boat was much too difficult, and there really wasn’t a boat designed for the Canadian environment.

In 1986, with the goal of simplifying the ownership experience and offering a boat designed by Canadians and built for Canadians, Legend Boats was born. Vic and Carl started by creating affordable and complete boat, motor and trailer packages and created a fully-priced catalogue so that pricing was easy for anyone interested in getting their family on the water. Then, they beefed up their boats with thicker aluminum and made full stand-up tops standard on most full windshield models to make sure every Legend boat could handle the rugged Canadian climate while keeping boaters safe and comfortable.

It wasn’t always easy, seven children and fifteen grandchildren later, Legend is proud to have the same owners and same focus on family values as it did over 30 years ago when Vic and Carl decided to dedicate their lives to making it easier and more affordable to get on the water. We can’t wait to welcome you to the Legend Family so that you can start creating your memories!
