The professionals say

Our boats are our best advertisement


Innovation is in the core of our business. Every day, every hour, every second. We stay on the top of our toes, leaning forward, with the goal to constantly evolve. Our biggest innovation to date, the revolutionary ÖK Hull, has greatly disrupted the worldwide maritime industry. Tested by independent research to be capable of up to 95% fewer slamming impacts than competing Deep-V Hulls, the ÖK Hull ensures an otherwise unattainable seakeeping standard for vessels in the most extreme marine environments.


There is a reason why Rafnar is quickly becoming the obvious choice for seasoned seafarers, as the seas rarely offer ideal conditions. Originally designed to meet the demands of Iceland’s long, dark and unpredictable winters, with ÖK Hull as key to its success, every aspect of the boat is designed to be rugged and prepared for any condition. Used by Coast Guards, SAR teams and Special Forces around the world, we have a pedigree of toughness that is hard to match.


Rafnar only uses the world’s best marine-grade materials. When done right, GRP is stronger than steel, surprisingly light, does not corrode, and requires very little maintenance. The resin, finishes off the sandwiching process of multiple layers of glass fiber, enclosing a closed-cell core in the middle that apart from looking good, gives numerous advantages over competing build processes. We never compromise on quality. This is why our boats are built this way.


Rafnar boats are built under the Lloyd’s Register Certification, assuring owners and operators of its high safety standards, exceptional seaworthiness and build quality, and adhere to the precise, patented scaling adaptation of the ÖK Hull technology. In line with strict standards and exquisite workmanship, we rely upon the application of the very latest in composite manufacturing technology and materials in all our production facilities.
