Late 1950's - 24 foot (assumed from the "24" on the wooden side panel)Searching back into history, especially when decades have gone by since the last of the Steel Kings floated into the water, is a bit tedious, much like an archeological expedition. Thankfully, there are still people out there either with knowledge of the Steel King boat era or who actually own one who are willing to share that information. Without them, these pages would go empty. It's fun to research over time and see what's still out there, how the boats are being used, and discover some of the history behind them. This is fueled by the fun I had as a kid on my father's 26' foot Steel King cruiser. Older now, I realize there must have been a bunch of people who enjoyed Steel King boats, and that the model I knew wasn't the only one out there. In this site I hope to bring forward some information of interest to steel boat fans. Enjoy! CIRCA 1959 - note the distinctive arrow on the hull. It was green on this boat and combined the slanted strip and arrow, seen separately on the models below which preceded her.
