the Company Marino is a pioneer in the production of fiberglass boats in Finland. The activities of this shipyard was started in 1958 in Kulosaari suburb Helsinki, where he lived the founder of the company, the boatman enthusiasttor-björn Fagerstrom (Tor-BjörnFagerström). A chemist by training, he was able to see in the new at the time, material, fiberglass, great prospects for the boat industry. Fagerstrom threw all forces on an innovative direction, for the sake of leaving work at the shipyard Bensow, where it is not met with understanding.
Your first boat he had to build in the garage. Then the production moved to the wing of the market pavilion in Hanko, which at the same time continued trade of food products. In 1965, the firm finally got its own production site in the city of Jokela, however, the boats were equipped and handed over to the owners in the same Kulosaari.
