Saare is a European brand, the manufacturing of the boats takes place in the far north, on the island of Saaremaa in Estonia. The German-owned yard is located close to the beautiful city of Kuressaare, in the fishing village Nasva. We manufacture the whole boat, according to the owner‘s wishes and needs.
Saare means island in Estonian, but for us, a Saare is much more than just a sailing island, Saare is a type of mindset. You enjoy nice craftsmanship combined with an excellent choice of materials, outstanding sailing properties and individualism, you have a Saare mindset.
The island of Saaremaa has a long history in boat building and many different yards are located on the island. The university of Tallinn has an engineering department including a towing tank there.
Estonian boat building has a long tradition and a high reputation.
Saare Yachts was founded in 1991 by producing small wooden boats and developed its way of building boats over the years. From 1997 onwards, the yard built more than 250 complete Finngulf Yachts as a contractor.
The own Saare Yachts brand was launched in 2008. Since then, more than 60 Saares were built and delivered to more than 18 countries. We are and want to stay a small family-run yard.
Saares crossed the Atlantic, sailed to Iceland, the Mediterranean, the North Sea and of course the Baltic. Saare owners report how safe and easy their boat sails. Our yachts are used, as cruisers, for club racing and worldwide blue-water sailing.
