Over four decades have passed since the first Marex Boat was launched in Norway. The Marex boatyard was established in 1973 in Grimstad, a small town on the south coats of Norway. The founder of Marex and General manager for over 20 years was Eyvin Aalrud. The Marex boatyard become very soon a success thanks to the farsightedness of Eyvin Aalrud. During this time Marex has remained a family company, gradually becoming one of the most solid European boat manufacturers in a very volatile business. The company is today owned and run by his two sons Espen and Thomas. Both brothers were born into the Boat industry and have been driven by boundless passion for boats and the family business since they took over in 1989. This has been achieved through excellent leadership and consistent investment in advanced boat building technology.
Today Marex Boats is stronger and bigger than ever and known all over Europe for its quality, longevity and durability. The proof of this is all the Awards and Commendations Marex has received over the last decade in the national and international arena.
