Arvor Boats

Arvor … then

Launched in 1978 by Frank Collins, Collins Marine were responsible for creating Arvor boats.

Frank Collins was a keen yachtsman, and in 1978, a Renault car dealer in Sydney. With a marine background and a career in engineering, it was inevitable that Collins would break in to the world of marine diesel engines.

In 1983, Renault in France quit the marine market to concentrate on the automotive market. Renault Marine Diesel was sold to Nanni Diesel Engines. With only a change of name, the same staff produced the same engines in the same factory based in Bordeaux.

Peter Collins joined his fathers company in 1984, and in 1989 the automotive business was sold with all efforts being placed on the Marine division. The successful company then decided to break into boat building. It was then that Arvor boats of France started to develop diesel shaft drive vessels. The first vessel was the Arvor 20.

Arvor … now

Today, there are 3 models in the Arvor range: Arvor 20 - Series II, Arvor 230AS, Arvor 250AS and Arvor 280AS.

Other quality features these boats provide, include a lock up wheel house, self draining decks and freshwater cooled engines.
