At first, the shipyard employed 50 employees and was doing a little rowing boats made of fiberglass. In 1966, the stocks came off their first motor boat, the Saga 20, which became a bestseller of the company. The success inspired the shipyard in the creation of Saga 27 — this time bestseller on a national scale. The boat with the changes was produced from 1968 through 2004, and the total number of sold buildings over 5000.
