The boathouses at Sunti continued the tradition of the old seaside storehouses, but they had to be built closer to the sea due to land uplift.

Boat traffic had always been lively in the seaside city of Kokkola, but the rise of the villa culture increased the need for boat storage spaces even further.

The current boathouses were mainly built between 1883 and 1950. Today, there are a total of 97 boathouses on both sides of the Sunti town strait.
