Founded in 1887, Ringens Varv shipyard, in Marstrand, Bohuslän, is one of the oldest boatyards in the region.

In 1973, Volvo Penta bought the shipyard and converted it into a specially adapted yard for the service and maintenance of recreational boats. Since 2001, Ringens Varv has been owned and operated by Peter and Pernilla Lind. Today, Ringens Varv is a repair yard for leisure boats and functions as one of Volvo Penta’s authorized dealers.
