About Us

Know in detail about us, Our team, our story & our wonderful Journey so far…

Brief Overview :

Giramar is an importer and dealer of boats from some of the world’s most traditional shipyards. We have deliberately chosen to represent manufacturers that build Boat – with big B – and not just one product. These are often producers where the basic family is still active in the business and producers that have existed for several generations, with sufficient financial strength to both want and be able to think quality. But first and foremost, it is about making us feel confident that those who have manufactured our boats have long traditions of boat building, think quality at every level and have a good eye for detail.

Our Story :

Giramar AS has come about because of a desire to work full time with what fills the body and soul with desire and joy: =) 

2013

It all started in 2013 as a collaboration with W-Yacht in Stavanger, European importers for Clipper and Explorer Motor Yachts . Then we got the agency for Muir winches and for Mantus anchors. 

2014

In the spring of 2014, we became importers in Norway of Dufour Yachts, together with W-Yacht.  The desire to represent a motorboat brand with a larger range of boats grew through 2014, and by the turn of the year it became clear that Giramar was chosen as an importer of Sea Ray Sport Boats and Sport Cruisers in Norway. This is a great range of open and closed boats from 19 to 37 feet.

2015

In the spring of 2015, Beneteau choseus as a new importer in Norway for their sailboats. W-Yacht then took over responsibility for Dufour. Beneteau is one of the world’s most solid and reputable sailboat brands, and has great boats from 20 to 62 feet in its First, Oceanis and Sense series.

2016

In the spring of 2016, we became an importer and distributor of XO Boats in southern Norway. XO Boats’ design and DNA originate from the challenging conditions in the Finnish archipelago. The boat’s long waterline, slim shape and extra deep V-hull in aluminum ensure the smoothest possible walk in all conditions. The unique design provides an exciting driving experience that allows you to explore the sea when others are in port.

2017

In the summer of 2017, we became an importer of boats from  Rhéa  Marine in Norway. Rhea builds her boats on the Biscay coast in France; boats that can withstand the sea we experience in our own waters along the entire coast of Norway. Local production, close and personal follow-up on quality, sense of good craftsmanship and long traditions as boat builders are what characterize this yard. 

2018

In the spring of 2018, we were selected as a dealer by Hydrolift . By designing and building in Norway, Hydrolift provides its boat owners with long-life boats and exceptional performance and efficiency. Here it is the founder Bård Eker who still puts his mark on the boats and on the business – a boat manufacturer that works continuously with product improvement and evolution, and delivers boats of the highest quality and unmatched design. 

In autumn 2018 terminates partnership with XO Boats.

At the same time, Giramar is elected importer and representative of Maritimo in Norway and Sweden. Maritimo builds safe, strong boats of luxury and comfort – for short and long trips. The yard is family run and builds on all the experiences Bill Barry-Cotter has with him from offshore racing and more than 40 years as a boat builder; first with the Riviera, and now with Maritimo.
