Thanks to the racing concept, Scandi Yachts has been the main user of High Tech material and building methods in Scandinavia. We have built many famous boats, such as Big Foot (Sweden), Fram VIII for the then-Crown Prince Harald of Norway, Rauma-Repola (Finland) and Deerfoot racing boats (USA). Most boats have been bought by private customers. At the moment, our business is dominated by Business-to-Business production. We do subcontracting work for domestic boatyards and are considered Finland’s biggest producer of vacuum infused motorboat hulls of sizes 37-46 ft. Today we have made just over 280 hulls with the method and we will not go back to the old laminating methods. We also produce moulds for other companies within the boat- and transportation industry. Our moulds are made with great professional skills. Our specialty is that we make the shiny surface in the plug and not in the mould which gives it a longer life length on the moulds and makes the end product’s surface finish of very high quality. We also do basic renovation, painting and insurance repairs.
