About Us

For the Love of the Lake
Owner Duane Hagadone grew up on Lake Coeur d’Alene and took command of his first boat at age 5, a 12-foot Larson with a 5hp Johnson motor. His passion for boats has never ceased, growing over the years to serve as the inspiration and vision for the Coeur Customs team to craft some of the most beautiful boats ever made.

Mr. Hagadone knows how special time spent on the water is, especially for families … and that each boat is a legacy to lifelong memories. He challenges the Coeur Customs team with ideas that bring together the most innovative collaboration of art, talent, craft, and technology.

He has imparted his mark for excellence to the Coeur Customs team, motivating them to get the build right the first time and giving them the motto, “Perfect is good enough.”
