Excellence From The Very Beginning
The basic concept of Linex-Boat Oy, nourished in the company by the Lindkvist family, is traditional Central-Ostrobothnian quality combined with a modern production-oriented thinking.
Sivert Lindkvist started building wooden fishing- and workboats in the 1920s. When his sons Rude and Sven came along, they started to make leisure boats using also fiberglass as a material. Today, Rude’s son Olli Lindkvist – a third generation boat builder – is in charge of the company.
