“The story of Saare began in February 2007 when Stig Nordblag, founder and longtime owner of Finngulf Yachts, and myself were having lunch at the Helsinki Boat Show. We talked about life, and about sailboats. Stig had just retired, and complained he was getting bored with his only hobby being washing his car. Changes at Finngulf had also freed up some spare time for our partner Karl-Johan Stråhlmann. And that’s how we made the decision to start something new.”
