StoryHistory of YMIA

After the launch of Yanmar’s FRP boat business, Yanmar Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. was established in Okayama in 1972.
In October of the same year, the A-250 was completed. This is the first FRP boat from Yanmar. When many of the coastal fishing boats in Japan were wooden, YMIA make a revolution to the popularization of high-durability FRP boats.
Leveraging our excellent FRP technologies, we have also expanded our share of the fishing boat market since 1980, focusing on the development and manufacturing of recreational boats.
