Aluminium Boats

Cutting Edge Aluminium is dedicated to building exceptional aluminium boats.

We understand the unique challenges of the extreme waters around Vancouver Island. Vessels need to be tough, built with the highest quality materials and perfect welds. Whether you’re in the market for a pleasure craft or a working boat, we listen to your needs and customize a solution just for you.

Our custom built boats are all designed by a Certified Navel Architect and they meet / exceed Transport Canada regulations. 

Custom Built Recreational Vessels

The more experience you have on the water, the better understanding you’ll have of knowing what you need and want for your ideal aluminium boat. Our pleasure boats allow you to feel confident on the water so you can relax and enjoy the time spent with family and friends.

A custom designed and built recreational aluminium boat will allow you to enjoy doing what you love and feel confident on the water. We’re dedicated to listening to your needs and delivering a boat that exceeds your expectations in performance and style.

We have high standards

With over 40 years of combined experience in the boat building industry, we’ve developed an eye for detail and innovative solutions for all types of operating conditions. Whether you’re looking for a crew boat, water taxi, research vessel, patrol boat, fishing boat, landing craft or to operate adventure tours, contact us to learn more about how we can deliver superior results.

Hard working boats

When production and performance matter, our boats work as hard as you do.  We have the custom solutions to make your operation run smoother. Listening to your needs and intended uses ensures we come up with an approved plan to build a custom vessel for you that’s reliable in all the harshest marine conditions.

Badinotti Net Services Canada Ltd. was first introduced to Leon's company Cutting Edge when we required a retrofit on one of our vessels the Gforce 2. We quickly recognized that the workmanship, solutions and professional approach to the project from Cutting Edge was at a high level of competency. As a result, Leon and his company are now Badinotti's first choice for our fabrication and design requirements for projects as well as repairs and maintenance work. Kevin Onclin, CEO, Badinotti Net Services Canada


I have never in my 50 years seen such quality work and fabricating - that man can weld! Without a doubt his work looks great when he's done. Leon is easy to talk to and when he has a problem, he calls immediately. I highly recommend him for all your welding and fabrication needs, you won't be disappointed. Dean Horatchka, Harbour Charters LTD
