UnderWater Hobby is an enterprise created by George Ioannou in 1986 out of his love and passion for the underwater world. Its activities include importing and trading diving products, as well as manufacturing highly specialized products such as
high-end diving suits, fins made of carbon fibers and wooden spearguns.
After successfully establishing itself in the special field of underwater activities, the business has entered the field of shipbuilding, namely inflatable boats for use in diving operations.
In 2002, after two years of tests and experimentation, the first specialized rib inflatable boat, named Aegean 444, was released for use in spearfishing. The boat was a great success, achieving the highest number of units sold in its category and others as well.
Other models followed with success, making Aegean ribs known abroad, where exports take place nowadays.Today, models by Aegean ribs range from 3.60 to 11 meters, featuring a flexible design and manufacturing depending on customers’ needs (custom made).
