With a mission to be “a world-class leader in the tournament boat industry,” Svfara is reaching out far beyond its Canadian roots. Svfara’s sales have increased over 40% each year since its inception, and the company continues to experience high levels of growth. While the 5-year-old company is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta with a factory in British Columbia, the designs are influenced by European luxury cars and a team of engineers and marine architects from Canada, New Zealand and Singapore, and markets are opening up from Sweden to Japan. In Japan, Svfara is the second highest selling tournament boat in that country with only two years of distribution there. Still, Canada’s first and only manufacturer of tournament tow boats keeps its focus on each individual boat. In addition to the multisport SV609, Svfara has recently launched its second tournament tow boat model, the wakeboarding and wakesurfing-specific SV696. Svfara strives to make its mark by exceeding customer expectations for design, performance and service, so every wood-free model is built one at a time rather than mass-produced. Quality control is meticulous throughout the assembly process, including hardness tests on the hand-laid fiberglass at each stage.The ultimate goal is to create a contemporary, luxurious boat, yet the price is reined in thanks to Canada’s lower manufacturing costs and a good exchange rate. That’s something any boat buyer can appreciate, no matter the country.

The interiors of our boats are assembled with a keen eye for detail, luxury and superior finish. Our interior molded gunnel systems are unique to the marine industry and add to the high-end automotive tyle of SVFARA’s line.
Our boats feature a hull, floor and stringer system joined together to become an integral structure. This innovative design, which is completely free of any wood fiber, maximizes the strength and durability available in performance tow boats. The hull is completely poured with closed cell flotation foam that ensures a safer and quieter ride. The deck and hull are joined by a shoebox fit hat is screwed and riveted every six inches. Marine Grade Sikaflex is also used around the entire joint to eliminate leaks and provide additional strength.
SVFARA Marine boats are completely hand-laid to guarantee consistent thickness and weight throughout each unit constructed. The body of each boat is layered with the best multi-directional fiberglass wrovings and fiberglass mats. Coremat is also laminated throughout the hull and deck. Every hand-laid layer of fiberglass is barcol tested to ensure a complete cure before progressing to the next manufacturing step.
