Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of MAKINEN

In 2023, MAKINEN is celebrating a significant milestone – 30 years in the marine interior industry. Looking back on the past three decades, we’ve come a long way from our beginnings. Today, we’re proud to be recognized as full-scope marine interior experts, providing refurbishment and newbuilding of cabins and public spaces and marine-grade furniture to our cruise industry customers worldwide. It’s been a journey full of challenges, changes, and growth, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our amazing customers, partners, and friends.

Over the last three decades, we’ve worked hard to create innovative products and services, build lasting relationships with our customers, and make a positive impact on the marine industry. We owe it all to our dedicated team of professionals who live by our values, provide the best solutions to our customers, and don’t hesitate to go the extra mile (or even a few) to get the job done.

As we embark on our fourth decade in business, we view it as another challenge to get even better at what we do. We will continue pursuing innovations, challenging ourselves, and delivering the highest quality services possible.
