The North Atlantic can be a treacherous place. The Icelandic people have known and respected this fact since the country’s settlement in 870 AD. As the open North Atlantic hammers Iceland’s shorelines, recreational boating is rare. In fact, most people view the ocean as a source of work and sustainable income, a place to be treated with fear and respect. Being able to live and thrive in this environment is no mean feat. This perspective is the fundamental inspiration for all Rafnar crafts, which are designed to be resilient and secure platforms for any purpose in even the most extreme marine environments.
