How we got the idea for ORIGO boat? Jure loves developing innovative ideas, as much as he loves fishing. The idea came to him while he was on one of his fishing trips, thinking about how easy it would be, if he could just pack up his boat as fishing gear and take it back home, without ever worrying where to dock it or having a hassle transporting it. And so the idea for ORIGO boat was born.

Development.
Development.

In this last year ORIGO Team developed a tight collaboration with local-based manufacturers to make sure everything can be produced with care. We went an extra mile and set a goal to check every single ORIGO boat before shipping it. The tests are done. Immense pleasure demonstrated. We are ready. So all our backers can have a peace of mind when it comes to fulfillment. We will maintain realistic time frame for scaling up production. That is why we divided our offers in more then one batches and customized offers for major tourism operators and potential distributors early on.

Storage for the first production models is prepared.

ABOUT US

"Years ago when my kids were just little, I made sure they were around boats as much as the time allowed. Due to our living situation deep in the city, having a boat was very difficult and expensive. Making plans with kids is hard. They want to do so much and with not much notice. So I had to think a way to deliver fast variations of safe water fun/exploring. After years of developing and testing we finally produced a prototype that is fully functional. In this last year we made a lot of friends that helped us achieve the point of development as it is today. The ORIGO Boat is the seed of many beautiful and brilliant minds."

ORIGO PRODUCTS

ORIGO boat as you can see today was a result of years of different ideas, products and solutions. In our old garage we have stored a assemblable 4 meters kayak, water skies that do not need any towing systems, first tryouts of foldable vessel and a big sister of ORIGO, plus many more inventions that all led us to the perfect result and a product that we are very proud of. At first the ORIGO family (Dolinšek) was excited to enjoy the seeds of our own dreams and hard work. We used ORIGO for our own fun and leisure and then started testing it. Every year we upgraded it to fit our many needs. Personal, professional and useful. This last two years our friends and by passers encouraged us to share our materialized vision with the world. You can see all the fun we had with official testing and trying to cause some damage to this beautiful boat. This includes extreme and abusive conditions, to make sure we have a product that meets rigorous safety and endurance standards.

MEDIA ABOUT US

Risks and challenges

Years of experience gave us enough knowledge to think outside of the box and figure out new and better solutions to make things that we love better. Looking at any new product as inventive as ORIGO boat you have to be much more careful with all the challenges moving your way. That is why we decided to look for any complications in the path from prototype to fully functional vessel in advance.
