About Us

This is why we do this!  

Learn all about us here at Gale Marine!  Gale Marine LLC was founded in 2012 by Jake Tupper, who had been researching and refining his boat building skills since 2007 in his garage. An avid sportsman, Jake was on a quest to build reliable airboats that would meet the unique challenges of running on ice, snow, water, mud, heavy vegetation, and the rough terrain a sportsman in the Midwest can encounter. In this quest, he developed the Gale Marine hull which is designed to hold up to these challenges. With every custom boat build, they strive to design an extremely durable and uniquely tailored boat to fit their customer’s needs.

With every custom boat build, we strive to design a uniquely tailored boat to fit your needs.  We are not a cookie cutter fabrication shop.  Whether it’s adding a console, gun box, live well, fuel cell, modifying the transom to accommodate a new motor, or any other upgrade to your current boat, or in the building of a completely new one, we’ve got you covered.

Gale Marine is located just 3 miles south of our Wisconsin hometown of Galesville. We decided that the right boats and motor combinations would take the midwest like a ‘gale’ force wind.
