Interlaken Boatworks was started by Greg Dudley in Buffalo, New York in 2016. The calling seems appropriate, Buffalo was once the world's busiest freshwater port and is a place with a strong maritime heritage.
Greg Dudley is a well known carpenter and builder in Buffalo's West Side. He began shifting his woodworking business towards boat building and in 2017 he started Interlaken Boat Works. Dudley came to Buffalo in 2007, lured by the city's beautiful and undervalued old homes. Buffalo, being charming and friendly, with just the right amount of rust belt grit, has had a hold on him ever since.
