Falls Flyer - Pre War



In 1939 Larson Boat Works introduced the world to the Falls Flyer. This boat, initially offered in either 12’ or 14’ length, could be powered by the largest outboards of the day. In 1940 Paul Larson applied for a design patent on an inboard version of this boat that was granted on April 15, 1941.

This inboard boat was highly acclaimed at the 1941 Chicago Boat Show, with orders outpacing all ability to produce enough boats, but the onset of World War II would interfere with its success and fate would later deal another devastating blow to the inboard Falls Flyer.
