ÖK Hull Licensing

Rafnar plans to disrupt marine industries globally with the ÖK Hull.  In order to achieve those goals, Rafnar will need the right partners. With the ÖK Hull being Rafnar‘s own patented technology, the company can offer licensing agreements to world-class ship and boat builders who wish to utilize the ÖK Hull technology as a platform for their own vessels.

The ÖK Hull can offer ship and boat builders a unique sustainable advantage over their competition. The ÖK Hull can provide builders with the innovative edge needed to win important tenders for specialized work boats, or to win over yacht tender customers with previously unattainable levels of comfort. 

Contact Rafnar for more information on ÖK Hull licensing opportunities.

Intellectual Property

The ÖK Hull is an intellectual property that defines Rafnar ehf.’s distinctive competitive advantage. In order to protect its intellectual property, Rafnar has secured registered Utility Patents in 25 countries, including the United States. Rafnar has also registered Design Patents in numerous countries and is currently working on registering Design Patents. The ÖK Hull  and "Keeping Comfort at Sea" are registered trademarks of Rafnar.

Rafnar actively polices the use of its intellectual property. Intellectual property protection is crucial for Rafnar and for Rafnar's partners who wish to use the ÖK Hull technology for their own crafts. Rafnar protects its intellectual property through a combination of patents, strong branding, trademarks, trade secrets, and non-disclosure and non-competition agreements.

Scalability of the ÖK Hull

Opportunities for ship builders

The ÖK Hull is scalable for large vessels beyond 15 meters. A future avenue of development for Rafnar is testing and demonstrations of the ÖK Hull for larger vessels than those currently available.

Rafnar has proven the ÖK Hull concept for yacht designs of up to 38 meters, where the concept was demonstrated to work for large vessels using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tests.
