"Turn The Tide with HDM"
High Speed Landing Craft from Hard Drive Marine
We build a very unique line of vessels, designed as working service boats, that eliminate the need for docking and ferrying on rugged, remote coastlines.
All conventional landing craft have one inherent drawback: to achieve a beach landing, they use a low chine, and shallow dead rise to get closer to shore. This design works for loading and unloading but stops the boat from running and performing well with any speed when water conditions are choppy or rough.
We have designed our custom aluminum landing craft to run in ALL conditions and deliver when and where you need it!
Proudly Made in the USA
"Thank you again for the great job you and your crew did on the skiff. We as a family love it and couldn't be happier with our decision to buy from you and not a competitor. I have already had job offers to use the vessel to transport cargo but have just referred them to you as my company is only intended for recreation."

"From the time I test drove a Hard Drive Marine to the time I took delivery of my very own Hard Drive Marine I knew I made the right decision. Having owned my own, plus operating countless other landing craft before my 3611 HDM, I was very aware of all the downfalls that were associated with high speed aluminum landing craft. Hard Drive Marine with their Max Gate has solved all those issues. I no longer have to worry about tides, wind, waves, or stability while loading and unloading family members and cargo on the beaches of the San Juan Island in the Pacific Northwest. Plus, with the added on wireless remote to operate the Maxgate I can adjust my boat up and down the beach with the changing tide levels without having to leave the comfort of my house, just one of the many cool features of these boats. Tom Day and his team of master fabricators at HDM were a pleasure to work with on this project of building my dream boat. They allowed me to be involved in every step of the build process, they listen to all my thoughts ideas of all the features I wanted to incorporate in my boat and even made those features even better than I could have imagined. I ended up with a boat that is beyond customized to my needs. If you're in the market for a high speed Landing Craft or looking to upgrade, Hard Drive Marine should be at the top of your list for a customized Landing Craft."
