Tradition with over 100 years of expertise
Boghammar Marin was founded as a subsidiary of “Gustafsson & Andersson Varvs AB” founded in 1905.
The company is with its 100 years of history one of the oldest still operating shipyards in Sweden. We are a family business
now run by the third and fourth generation Boghammar. Since its creation, the shipyard has been involved in the production of ships/boats of its own design, where we also have designed and constructed our own marine engines “Bog-Marin”.
Between 1920 and 1930 we made a series of aircraft for the Swedish Air Force. The aircraft manufacturing was sold and
then became a part of creating the world-famous Saab Company. With the experience of aircraft production the yard in 1928
produced one of Europe’s first lightweight metal boats. Lightweight metal vast potential was obvious, but because of a shortage of aluminum during the Second World War the production of light metal boats did not start properly until 1950.
In the late sixties, the yard undertook the design and construction of three racing boats, which participated in international
offshore races. All built in aluminum, one of the speedboats won and held for some time the World Championship
title in the category of “world's fastest diesel driven boat”.
With the experience of racing boats the shipyard managed during the 1980s to export fast patrol boats to Iran, Ethiopia,
Taiwan and Britain. These high-speed boats with long, narrow, specially designed hulls and surface cutting propellers has
excellent sea keeping capabilities with speeds up to 70 knots. During this time the shipyard also produced fast diesel-powered boats, pilot boats to the Swedish Maritime Administration, large passenger ships to include Libya
and also at the time the world’s largest yacht.
We are now focused on passengers- and commercial ships, such as patrol boats, police and pilot boats in sizes
up to 40 meters. Today, we are working with both new buildings, alterations and qualified maintenance. Where we constantly develop and renew our technology and products. Three generations Boghammar with over 1 170 boats
made have resulted in a concept in Swedish ship industry.
