For the last few days the Rafnar 1100 sale in Greece has been covered by the Icelandic, Greek and international media. We want to thank everyone for their interest in our unique boat design. We still have much to show but we like to let our boats do most of the talking. We are happy to hear that the sea trials are going great, but mostly we are happy to hear that the crews are loving the boats. That is what Rafnar is all about.Read More
Not only can the OK Hull take on incredibly bad weather and provide a smooth ride for crew, but another trait of the hull is truly remarkable handling. Here this 11m twin outboard boat turns in just over her own length at about 30 knots approach speed. Please note this demonstration was pre-planned and by an experienced helm. No other moored boats were in the immediate vicinity with the exception of the yacht slowly approaching off the port side.Read More

A short look around the unique RIB Rafnar hull. The arc of circle is a principle that allows the hull to use low pressure zones to glue itself to the water whilst maintaining speed and efficiency. The Rafnar hull is not a planing hull in the usual sense of the word.Read More

Rafnar has received a number of questions lately on how the ÖK Hull behaves when beached. For that reason, we decided to take our Flengur 850 series and try it for ourselves at a beach close to our offices in Kópavogur. The first test was done with the aim of being able to jump onto land and get back onboard and out into open water without the need of assistance from a second vessel. The second test was done with the aim of getting the boat completely onto dry land and out of the water. Check out the video to see how the trials went.
