For over 50 years, Rapp Marine has delivered innovative winches, marine cranes, and load handling systems to commercial work vessels.

In 2014, Rapp Marine Group restructured and became two separate entities, Rapp Hydema and Rapp Bomek. Under the leadership of new CEO Helge Vatnehol, Rapp Hydema rebranded as Rapp Marine. Rapp Marine’s headquarters is situated in Bodø, Norway, with offices in Seattle, WA for the U.S. market, named Rapp Marine US Inc., and Peterhead, Scotland for the U.K. market, named Rapp Marine UK Ltd.
