Rafnar established in Athens as Rafnar Eastern Mediterranean

As Rafnar eastern Mediterranean, Rafnar will operate in Greece as the shipyard has recently announced.

The department will be responsible for operation, marketing, selling, building and servicing of Rafnar vessels in Athens and  the surrounding region. Rafnar- Hellas has already begun the production of  Rafnar’s flagship craft, the Leiftur 1100, since there are already orders for it.

A Leiftur 1100 is already in built at the Rafnar-Hellas yard, although this one will be slightly different. Instead of the typical 2x300hp outboard configuration, the craft will be fitted with 3x350hp Mercury Verado engines, a significant power boost!

The Leiftur 1100 3x350 will be a very different beast to its Leiftur 1100 series predecessors in terms of power output, while still retaining the core seakeeping benefits of the Rafnar Hull.
