The AMT boats are as Finnish as they come. The whole range is both designed and manufactured in Finland, which we at AMT are extremely proud of. AMT was the first boat brand to receive the "key flag" award by the Association for Finnish Work in recognition of the Finnish origin of the products. The AMTs are manufactured in two modern factories, and the capacity is up to 1 600 boats a year.
A PIONEER OF 28 YEARS.
The year was 1986, when the boat and motor division of Finland's largest central wholesaler asked Aimo Mustonen to establish a boat factory for designing and manufacturing a proprietary boat range for the company. The central wholesaler had had its proprietary brand for years, and the range available at the time mainly consisted of products from different boat manufacturers, marketed under the wholesaler's own brand. The new range was to be designed and manufactured to be competitively priced even though the distribution chain was one link longer than that of competitors. The development of AMT-Veneet Oy's production facility was launched immediately, including a global survey on small boat manufacturing. The actual production began on Nov. 4, 1987. The staff at the production facility had been trained in AMT's new and effective serial production methods, and within a few months production volumes surpassed those of competitors that used traditional methods. In addition to manufacturing, AMT's operations included structural design of boats, selection and procurement of materials and accessories as well as establishment of an extremely effective component manufacturer network. AMT also handled boat certification and distribution to retailers and importers. Boats manufactured by AMT quickly became a staple of quality in their size classes which others aspired to achieve and were benchmarked against. AMT continued as the contract manufacturer of the central wholesaler until 2005 when it decided to discontinue the collaboration. Up until then more than 30 boat models were designed and more than 25 000 boats manufactured at the company's two production facilities. In the latter half of 2005 AMT began developing its own proprietary boat range. Switching from contract manufacturing to proprietary products offered the company better opportunities to apply and gain benefits from its expertise. Many features enhancing safety and comfort, which had not been feasible earlier due to cost reasons, could now be implemented in the company's own models. The first five AMT-models were introduced for the first time at the 2006 Helsinki International Boat Show. During the pasi ten years the range has grown to a versatile fleet of 13 boats in size classes 4,5 to 6,9 meters. TRAILBLAZER AND TEST WINNER.AMT designs, develops and manufactures its own products. The company has also developed a special 3D design software that directly controls the machining units and enables simultaneous manufacturing of prototypes and molds of all parts of the boat. This methos offers excellent measurement accuracy, and it has taken the use of space and, most of all, safety in the design of the AMT range to a whole new level. The end result is AMT boats that meet the needs of the most demanding boaters. Ever since they were first introduced, AMT boats have been extremely successful in product tests and comparisons conducted by both Finnish and International boating magazines. AN ALL-FINNISH BOAT RANGE. The AMT boats are as Finnish as they come, both designed and manufactured by Finnish professionals at two modern Finnish factories. AMT was the first boat brand to receive the "key flag" award by the Association for Finnish Work in recognition of the domestic origin of the products. At the two factories in Kontiolahti in the Northern Karelia region, up to 1 600 boats are built every year. AMT is also a significant exporter selling boats abroad in e.g. Sweden, Norway, Russia, Denmark, Estonia and the UK. DRIVEABILITY - COMFORT - SAFETYThese three words sum up the basic concept of the AMT boats. Driveability – the performance provided by four-stroke outboard engines and the maneuverability of the boats have been rankes excellen in several tests by boat magazines. Comfort – the design of the boats' details incorporates solutions that increase the comfort level of the driver and passengers. The equipment standard of the boats is second to none in each size class.v Safety – all design builds on unyielding safety. The boats incorporate a unique "safely to shore" construction that makes them unsinkable as well as other structural safety features.
AMT, Advanced Marine Tech, did not get its name coincidentally. The team behind the AMT range have a 30-year experience in developing marine products and by now we have over 30 000 manufactured boats on our good conscience. This background gives us a unique know-how and an invaluable expertise. In designing the AMT range we have combined marine technology with innovative design while infusing it with our perfection-seeking passion in boat building, which has grown and developed during the past years. Our aim has always been to create the best boats in the 15 - 23 foot segment. At the two AMT factories located in Kontiolahti in Northern Karelia we focus especially on high quality and high-end finishing touches. The AMT factories are some of the most modern boat building facilities in Finland.
PERFORMANCE – MORE THAN JUST KNOTS AND HIGH SPEED
All AMT boats are delivered with outboard engines that suit the entirety. This guarantees that your boating experience starts from the very moment you switch on the ignition. A well-balanced hull combined with a suitable engine power gives both driver and passengers an experience to remember, without any big surprises. Therefore we build hulls where the main focus is on safety, while simultaneously also investing in true driving pleasure. Thanks to the hydrodynamically optimized design and a bottom V-angle of 18-20 degrees all our manufactured models offer economic, fast and safe running, without spraying sea water on the passengers. In our opinion a true boating experience is determined by balance, responsiveness and counter-effects, rather than by knots only - the AMT way of defining performance.
FOR THE QUALITY CONSCIOUS CONSUMER
AMT's clear vision is, and has always been, to make boating available for everyone to enjoy. That is why we have decided to offer all of our experience in one and the same package, making it both safe and easy for you to choose your boat, and to make boat owning as effortless as possible. A versatile standard accessory list is a good example of this - the AMTs are standardly fitted with many accessories our competitors offer as costly accessories. All our boat models have been fitted with a swim ladder, an extra fuel tank, a fire extinguisher and a boat hook/paddle. Additionally we always include the mooring equipment as standard, i.e. fenders with fender lines, anchor with anchor line and mooring lines. Another typical AMT-solution are the lockable storage compartments that have been fitted with an Abloy single-key system.
AMT is also a safe choice - the whole range has been made using a unique "Safely to shore"-construction, which keeps the boat afloat even if the hull would fill up with water so that you can drive the boat to the closest shore.
