ALUMINIUM BOATS SINCE 1955
Buster Boats is the largest and industry leading Northern European designer and manufacturer of aluminium powerboats. Step into the world of Buster boats and create your own adventure.
The Buster Mini is a full aluminium family boat, that can be rowed or driven by outboard engine. Depending on your choice, you can equip it with electrical or combustion engine or alternatively oars. As it only weighs 100 kg, it can easily be handled ashore. Winter haulout is a breeze as you can turn it upside down and leave it for the dark, cold season. Being unsinkable it is a safe choice.
The Buster Mini is an excellent choice for the summer cottage, for fishing, small transportations or as a tender to a bigger boat. Rain doesn’t impede it, because the Easy Bail (pat.) bailer empties the boat both ashore and under way. Due to it’s full aluminium construction, the Buster Mini does not require much in terms of maintenance. The occasional wash with fresh water is enough. Compared to a GRP boat, the Buster Mini is truly a Carefree Choice!
Though the Buster Mini is the smallest boat in the range, it can carry three passengers with luggage in it’s surprisingly spacious interior. Three upholstered seats guarantee comfortable trips even when going slow. The Buster Mini is the only boat in the range specifically designed with rowing in mind. It can be carried by two adults, and for longer trips it can be trailed behind a small car on a trailer w/o brakes (local regulations and applicable laws to be followed).
For the 2018 season we introduced the brand new Mini Sport. This new model is a great example of how fun on the water does not have to cost you an arm and a leg. Mini Sport is based on the Buster Mini hull – with a small steering console. With the higher maximum engine power rating of 10 hp, you will discover that this is quite the small sports boat. With the new console, the Buster Mini Sport is perfectly suited for short commuting or, equally well as the first “real” powerboat for younger family members. With the 9,9hp Yamaha outboard you will easily reach maximum speeds over 20 knots.
The carefree and durable aluminium hull is virtually maintenance free, and the boat can be left at the summer cottage awaiting new adventures. The optional harbour cover keeps the boat dry and clean when you leave it. Long transports are effortless and undramatic on a trailer without brakes behind a regular car.
The Buster S stands tall among competitors due to its modern, clean hull shape. From its predecessors, it retains its status as a versatile craft for inland lakes and coastal waters alike. The carefully designed and meticulously executed details, create a purpose-built boat for summer outings, fishing and commuting. The hull also has less of a planing threshold, especially when loaded.
Buster S is three boats on the same hull. The model is available as a traditional open version, driven from the aft seat, as a single side console version, and finally as a single centre console version. The open version is well suited for someone looking for a simple, safe all rounder with lots of cargo space. If you value the protection provided by the console as well as the steering wheel, you will choose side console version S1 or centre console version Scc. The centre console version Scc maximises available deck space, while S1 with a side console gives room for more passengers. Stowage is available beneath the aft seat. The model is CE certified for four persons. Buster S can also be converted to an impeccable fishing boat thanks to a complete fishing package designed just for Buster S.
Buster designs all models to be as adjustable as possible. The Buster S is no exception. Due to the different layout options, the Buster S can double as spacious commuter, picnic boat for summer outings, or pure cargo carrier. You can trail the boat on a trailer without brakes behind a regular car. The improved seagoing abilities give you an additional sense of safety if the weather deteriorates. Buster S is designed to carry on its legacy as mandatory standard equipment for the summer cottage.

Since it´s inception in 1994, the Buster Magnum has successfully forged it´s legacy as the most popular, large, outboard aluminium powerboat in the Nordic countries. We have built almost 5.000 Magnums over the years, and every new model has been greeted with awe by the public, and trepidation by us as to whether the market will accept yet another “bigger” boat. Yet it seems we have struck gold because every Magnum model has always outsold our initial expectations – both in terms of cumulative volumes as well as longevity. To the point where we really feel that to take the concept further, something completely different is needed. Enter our new flagship model: the all new, 2017 Buster Phantom.
