Today, Babord is proud of this heritage and this island home, and the islanders remain passionate about the continued success of the business. They are boat builders and fishing people raised with the open sea as both their neighbour and provider.
In return, Babord cares for the local community and seeks to create prosperity for the town, its people and the region. Indeed, our mission is to develop solid and sustainable companies that help to benefit ALL the communities in which we operate. We believe our presence should always make a difference.
– THE SAFE HAVEN: MÅLØY ON VÅGSØY
Måløy sits on the shores of Ulvesundet Sound on the island of Vågsøy, and is joined to the mainland by a 1,224 metre long bridge, an impressive structure that forms a majestic gateway for all sea-going traffic. Some 6,000 people live on Vågsøy where the economic mainstays are fishing, fish-farming and shipbuilding.
