History of Maril
Maril, opting for trust since 1997
The history of Maril starts in 1997 in Koudum under the name Maril Boats. The two founders derived this name from the names of their oldest children, MAR(k) and IL(se). From the beginning Maril has been a very popular sloop brand, with good sailing characteristics, comfort, safety and quality. Maril’s passion for water sports can be felt in every sloop.
It all started with the Maril 625, a very popular model and one of the first sold models in the Netherlands.This was followed by the Maril 850 in 1999, and as a trendsetter in this segment, this model was modified and renamed the Maril 890 in 2001. In 2005 this model was completely adjusted, larger, more spacious, more luxurious with standing height in the cabin, to the now classic Maril 950.
The Maril 570, another great success, was introduced in 2002. Besides the optimal comfort, the sailing properties of this sloop are unique because of a good and well thought-out underwater hull. The Maril 570 and 625 became the new standard in the sloop world.

In 2012 and 2013, a completely new type of Maril is put on the market, the Maril 795 Tender and the Maril 595 Tender follow a year later.
