Birger Kullmann Design is a pioneer in design of modern leisure and commercial craft in Scandinavia.

We are well known for our ability to combine the best of materials for any given purpose, be it laminated wood or vacumbagged and heatcured advanced composites, -or any combination thereof!
We have been involved in the design and building of a number of craft ranging from a 2 metre dinghy to the 278 metre Vikingship built for the 1994 Olympic Winter Games.

And the lines for the world record holding freefall lifeboats...
