Used 1991 Lund 16 Fisherman
It had been nearly six decades since the first Lund boats were assembled in New York Mills by G. Howard Lund, and over the past decades Lund has grown into the premier fishing boat company in America.
In 1948 Howard built his first aluminum duck boat, which took about a week to build. The boat was on top of the family car along highway 10, and this unintentional advertising brought a boat salesman from Inland Marine Corporation to his doorstep. He inquired where he could get a boat like that. Howard explained that he had built it himself, and that he was willing to build more. The salesman put in an order for 50 boats, and with that Lund America was created.
The business started with three employees in his garage, and a year later he had moved to a new building, and hired 15 employees. Since then the company has expanded to take up 29 acres, and employ over 500 people.
