Raider Boats Staff
Raider Boats Inc. staff and management welcome you to our website. Please use this information to contact our Raider Boats personnel. We look forward to providing you with excellent information about our boats.
Owner, Raider Boats, Inc.
Mike started working with Aluminum in 1967 at Spartan School of Aeronautics where he became a licensed aircraft, airframe and power plant mechanic.
He worked for several years, repairing and rebuilding wrecked aircraft. After building and designing boats for three other boat companies he and his wife, Vicki decided in 1990 to start their own boat company. Raider Boats only build welded aluminum boats 17’ through 30’.
Vice President, Raider Boats, Inc.
Vicki’s background is in bookkeeping, collections and exportation/documentation. She worked for a heating and air conditioning manufacturer for fifteen years and gained a lot of experience in record keeping, collections, exporting products in countries around the world and working with various banks with export documentation. My working within a management team and production gave me a good understanding of how manufacturing works.
Vicki does the bookkeeping and works with production and sales along with Mike at Raider Boats.
LaDonna came to Raider Boats with 8 years of boat manufacturing experience. She works in the office negotiating and organizing manufactured parts orders, kitting parts for our finish department, working with and addressing our inventory levels and filling customer orders. LaDonna has been with us since February 2012. Her favorite part of the manufacturing process is seeing the raw material (aluminum) start as a flat sheet then seeing the end product.
