Herman Samson and Daryl David have been building boats in their shop in Pondville, Isle Madame since 1986. Isle Madame is an island off the South Coast of Cape Breton Island that has serviced fishing ports since the Europeans first started fishing off North America.
The company takes pride in the rugged seaworthy craft that they produce from their high-quality moulds. The boats are sold as kits at any stage of completion or as finished products. Samson Enterprises produce serious inshore fishing boats of various sizes and moulds.
Samson produces three main models, the Samson line, the Magna and the North Shore line, along with its Cape Island style hulls.
Samson's has 3 locations to service all customers. A repair facility with a 150-ton travel lift on the watr in Petit de Grat, a finish shop in Pondville and a moulding plant in Lennox Passage, Industrial Park.
