Pinball boats have a long and interesting history that began in the 1960s. Originally, the company started as part of the Fiskars group and mainly manufactured fiberglass products. But in 1960 the company began experimenting with making boats in glass fiber reinforced plastic (GRP).
In 1963, Flipper launched its first boat model, the Flipper 420, which was a smaller rowing boat. Soon the company began to develop larger boats and by the 1970s they had established themselves as one of the leading boat manufacturers in Finland.
During the 1980s and 1990s, Flipper continued to grow and expand internationally. The company launched several new models, including day boats, cabin boats and cruiser models. Flipper was known for offering high quality and performance.
In 1991, Brunswick Corporation bought Flipper from the Fiskars Group. Under Brunswick, Flipper continued to develop and launch new models, and in 2009 production moved to Bella-Veneet Oy in Rymättylä, where Flipper is still manufactured today.
Today, Flipper is one of the most well-known and respected powerboat manufacturers in Europe.
