Strand Marine & Auto Systems Ltd started operating in 1990 importing boats under the Larson brand name from the USA and eventually branched out into the automotive market, mainly focusing on batteries and lubricants. It has since become the local distributor for Varta, the largest car battery manufacturer globally, and Mannol lubricants

To offer a better customer after sales service, Strand Marine also imports a wide range of marine and automotive spare parts, ancillary boat equipment and offers the services of fully qualified engineers.

In 2005, it opened a new 600-square-metre state-of-the-art complex, comprising a showroom, a repair centre, a workshop and sales and administration offices. Seven years later, Strand Marine further expanded its marine division with the acquisition of the Suzuki Marine and Nuova Jolly ribs dealerships to complete its sales range and be able to offer a complete rib and outboard package to address a growing demand in this segment.

Then, in 2015, it set up a new Service Centre, built to Suzuki's specifications and featuring the latest Suzuki tooling and diagnostic equipment.

Strand Marine is the sister company of Esprit Yachting, which is the exclusive dealer in Malta for Azimut Yachts.
