ALAMARIN-JET HISTORY

Alamarin-Jet founder Mr. Jussi Mäntylä

1976

Alamarin-Jet was founded over 40 years ago in 1976 by Finnish engineer Mr. Jussi Mäntylä

Jussi Mäntylä’s hobby was sport fishing along the rocky coast of the Baltic Sea, of course this environment is not well suited to outboards or sterndrives and he realised that a water jet was required. Having investigated what was available to purchase he decided to develop his own water jet…and Alamarin-Jet Oy was born.

Alamarin-Jet started with the manufacturing of their Hard Top Jet Boat range and also in the early days offered complete boat conversations including engines from Ford Sabre, Volvo Penta and Mercury.

Alamarin-Jet also made complete jet modifications to Buster and Silver boats, the largest manufacturers of aluminium boats in Europe.

In the beginning of the early 1990s Alamarin-Jet stopped building boats and focussed only on the production of complete water jet units.

1997 marked the beginning of deliveries to SOLAS type approved vessels, with the AJ 230 being fitted by ASTRA-MARINE OY in Finland to their newest Fast Rescue Craft.

Alamarin-Jet are now the worldwide market leader supplying jets to the SOLAS LIFE BOAT industry.
