Mirro Aluminum Company of Manitowoc, Wisconsin first began manufacturing aluminum fishing boats in 1956. Marketed under the name of MirroCraft, the original line offered a series of quality boats for recreational fishing and pleasure. Gradually, as demand grew, the boat line was expanded to include boats from 10-19 feet in length with varying inside configurations and features.
In 1982 several employees of Mirro Aluminum purchased the aluminum boat business from Mirro and relocated the operation from Manitowoc, WI to Gillett, WI. As a result, the name of the company was changed to Northport, Inc. However, the trade name of MirroCraft was retained. The company remained under that ownership until 2003 when the owners of Weeres pontoons in St. Cloud, MN bought MirroCraft. The company remained in Gillett, WI, but was renamed Northport Corp. of St. Cloud.
That ownership group remained in force until 2012 when Northport Marine, LLC bought the company. Northport Marine, LLC consists of MirroCrafts’ existing management team, and has purchased the company from Northport Corp. of St. Cloud.
This buyout will allow MirroCraft to continue manufacturing aluminum fishing and fish & ski boats at the current location without any disruption. Since 1956 MirroCraft has been committed to building the best utility fishing boats possible and are looking forward to continuing doing so. In September of 2012, Northport Marine added their own line of pontoons. Montego Bay pontoons are a great addition to an already successful line of aluminum fishing boats.
The MirroCraft name has become and continues to be synonymous with boat innovation, safety and quality. MirroCraft is currently sold through dealers across all of the US and Canada. Click here to watch our informational video and learn how we got started.
