Established in 1954 by brothers Houston & Jamie Lewis, the Lewis family boatbuilding operation today is run by Jamie & his son James. The family’s unspoken commitment to the tradition is evident in every boat, & it has supported this business for three, almost four, generations. For that work & commitment, the Lewis Family Boatbuilders are 2016 NC Heritage Award recipients.
