Maril Boats was founded in Koudum in 1997. The name “Maril” is derived from the names of the older children of the founders, namely MAR (k) and IL (se).
The Maril characteristics of performance, comfort, safety and quality have made for a very popular brand. Our passion for boating can be enjoyed in every Maril sloop.
It all started with the Maril 625, a very popular model, and one of the first models sold in the Netherlands. This was followed in 1999 by the Maril 850; a trendsetter in this segment and in 2001 this model was adapted and renamed the Maril 890. In 2005, this model was fully developed into the bigger, more spacious, more luxurious Maril 950 with headroom in the cabin.
The Maril 570, another success story, was launched in 2002. In addition to comfort, the incredible stability of the boat was a unique characteristic due to the well designed hull. A similar hull was then untilised in the development of the Maril Maril 625. The 570 and 625 set a new standard in open boats.
The demand for larger boats started for Maril in 2005 and we were one of the first boat builders to pioneer medium range cruisers with the introduction of the Maril 860. After several successful years we added the Maril 880 in 2008 and then, in 2010, added the Maril 880 Cabin.
The trend of larger boats was followed by the introduction of Maril 725 and a year later with the Maril 730 in 2006.
In 2008, Maril Boats merged with Makma and, in the porcess, took on its completely new premises at the Tjalke of Walstraat in Koudum. In the autumn of 2008, the new company merged again with Antaris and decided to transfer the three brands into a new company called Aquatec Industries.
In 2010, the three brands combined at the heart of boating in Friesland; Woudsend. This unique location has a huge indoor facility where one can view the the full range of boats in the water – all under one roof. It is also possible to take out one of the range a trial run.
Innovation is of paramount importance at Aquatec and, therefore, we regularly release a new model on the market. In recent years, the following models have been added to the fleet:
- 2010 Maril 880 Cabin
- 2011 Maril 650
- 2012 Maril 795 Tender
- 2013 Maril 595 Tender
