A Family Tradition
Bryant Boat is located in Sweetwater, Tennessee - a small, quiet little town within a stone’s throw of some of the most scenic lakes in the Southeast. We are headquartered in a historic brick building that we renovated to preserve its history and set the tone for the handmade craftsmanship that goes into the making of each Bryant boat.
You could say boat building is in our blood. For the Bryant family, boat building is a tradition that has spanned nearly 50 years. In 1960, Jim Bryant founded his first boat company in Knoxville, Tennessee. Thirty years later, he and his son Joe founded Bryant Boats in nearby Sweetwater. It's the only thing they’ve ever done, and the only thing they’ve ever wanted to do. Building the best boats in the world is more than a family business; it’s a family passion. And when you build a limited number of boats per year - and you put your family name on each and every one of them - you take the time to make sure that they are built right. It’s our love made real.
