Boat Buyer’s Guide 2012: Sylvan Marine

December 17, 2011
## Sylvan Marine


Sylvan Marine traces its history back to the late 1940’s, when it was founded as a pontoon and houseboat manufacturer near Sylvan Lake in Wolcottville, Indiana. The company was purchased in the early 1970s by Harold Schrock who was the founder of Starcraft. Today, the Sylvan brand is part of the Smokercraft Family of products and continues to be known for quality, innovation, and value. With exclusive features such as the Revolutionary Planing Technology Tubes, Sylvan has always been at the forefront of the pontoon industry. We invite you to experience the pride of owning a Sylvan and becoming part of our family’s tradition.
