BARK inflatable boats are hand made. Not because we failed to automatize some production processes. Basically, the skilled hand labor is the guarantee of quality. Hand labor is employed in different industries, namely in automotive production, watchmaking, electronic engineering and aerospace industry. Our approach is proven by common practice of our foreign partners.

Moreover we use a number of know-how in BARK inflatable boats production, keeping a close eye on the latest engineering achievements.

Conformity to the international and local standards of quality. We meet the main international standard for boats - ISO 6185. The norms of this standard are basic for us. Though we organized our production processes in such a way that allowed us to exceed the standards. We have ISO 9001 Certificate too. Our production facility is certified by the Register of Navigation of Ukraine which regularly verifies conformity of production processes to stringent norms by issuing the Certificate of conformity. Every BARK inflatable boat has the Certificate of coastal vessel issued by the Register of Navigation. We also have appropriate Certificates which allow us to sell our products not only in the European Union but in other countries according to their standards in force.

Competence. The BARK rowing and motorized inflatable boat is the result of efforts and synergy of a group of qualified professionals driven by commitment to the continuous improvement.

Multi-level quality system. Alnog with the external quality control fulfilled by the Register of Navigation of Ukraine, we maintain a stringent in-house control of every production cycle. Personal liability to the customers is the additional stimulus for craftsmen. Every BARK rowing and motor boat has a serial number indicated both in the Certificate of coastal vessel and on the boat’s label. By referring to the serial number we can identify the personnel who originally produced your boat.

With proven top quality, the BARK inflatable boat can meet any challenge. Originally our inflatable boats were meant for active leisure. According to the international classification they qualify for leisure coastal boats. In the meanwhile the BARK rowing boats serve as lifeboats on the vessels and completely justify confidence.

According to your requirements we can manufacture a boat with the material’s density of 1100 g/m2, even though the basic version’s density is lower than 1100 g/m.

BARK: a little piece of history

The 90-s. Enthusiasts of the healthy leisure on the water, dreamers with educational background in engineering used to repair and customize different inflatable boats for themselves and friends. Since then they have launched production of inflatable boats of their own design. The hobby turned to business in 1998. Small-scale production of 4 models has been started. The production area then was 60 sqm. The staff consisted of 10 people.

2001 – registration of the BARK trademark. The production area is 1000 sqm. Sixty craftsmen manufacture 10 models of boats. We began to participate in the international fairs in Poland, Germany, the Netherlands and France. We received the European Certificates and began to export our products to the European Union countries.

2013 – Complete renewal of the product range. The production area is 3500 sqm. One hundred and seventy craftsmen manufacture 41 models of BARK boats. The development is still on.
