Novamarine was founded in Olbia in 1983, beginning with the production of boats with flexible hulls and wooden keels. The cold-glued and air-inflated tubulars represent the company’s first steps.


In 1985, an innovative technique transformed traditional rubberized fabric hulls into hulls entirely made of VTR. This turning point opened new horizons for the company, with a range from 260 to 430 cm, redefining the expectations of the nautical market.


Starting in 1987, Novamarine began the first projects for support boats and vessels for professional markets. With prominent initiatives such as the Destriero and Azzurra projects, the company grew, producing up to 600 units a year, adopted as tenders by most yachts.


In the early 1990s, Novamarine launched the tender jet, an innovative product that integrates the technical needs of yachts with the desires of clients. This innovation was quickly adopted by yacht builders, creating a symbiosis between yacht and tender, and focusing production on models between 320 and 430 cm.

1992 – 1994

During the challenging years between 1992 and 1994, interest in boating waned, reducing demand. However, these years allowed the company to concentrate its energy on research and development, preparing new products for the future.

Second Half of the 90s

In the second half of the 90s, Novamarine introduced the tubular filled with elastic foam, pushing its design limits. This period saw the birth of the research and development area, dedicated to the study of new products while maintaining the company’s fundamental principles. The solid tubular became a distinctive feature for both civilian and professional boats.

Early 2000s

In the early 2000s, Novamarine refined its projects, introduced larger sizes, and evolved the design of boats, making them increasingly more performant and safe. The slogan “Only air in common with others” evolved into “Not even air in common with others“, reflecting the innovation of solid tubulars.


In 2013, the SNO group acquired the Novamarine brand, putting new energy into it and establishing its new beginning. This marked a restart with ambitious projects such as the BS 220 and the BS 140, expanding the offer also for professional vehicles with renewed military interest.


Between 2014 and 2015, Novamarine enriched the civil range with the BS 100 and BS 120 and supplied 20 units to the Qatar Coast Guard. The company focused on quality and certifications, introducing larger sizes such as the BS 160, and continued production for the military market.


In 2020, Novamarine relaunched the RH line with traditional tubular, offering the new RH 800 and RH 1000. This return marked a repositioning in the market with products that embody the tradition and innovation of the brand.


In 2021, the BS range expanded with the BS 140 EGO, designed for a market niche, combining elegance, sportiness, and functionality, and reconfirming Novamarine’s unrivaled style.
