  • Description: Located at the height of the 46th parallel on the Ile de Ré, their shipyard was created in 1987 by the Joubert family and has developed in a specific niche with classic boats that are both unexpected and original. The Tofinou was originally a 7-meter dayboat which, historically, would have been found on a sandbank and whose founders would have been inspired to create the range. This has given rise to aesthetic, efficient and comfortable luxury sailboats ideal for day cruises and solo sailing. The Tofinou range, which takes its name from a tribe of Benin meaning "people of the sea", is now made up of 7 models. From Australia to Brazil, via Japan, many owners and members of yacht clubs have fallen under the spell of their boats with their fine and classic lines, and whose quality of artisanal construction has nothing to envy. to more modern units. They progressed little by little, later developing motor boats, again with the idea of ​​making very simple boats. Drawn on a corner of a table in a restaurant, L'Andreyale, taking its name from the bar André, today constitutes an original range ranging from 10 to 20 meters. As for her, the Lady Scarlett is a motorized dayboat, inspired by a vintage style, which bears the name of one of the daughters of its creator. Their work is always carried out respecting a certain marine tradition of varnish and mahogany while remaining extremely functional and beautiful. Their artisanal construction site attaches great importance to aesthetics: a boat must be beautiful. The preservation of exceptional French know-how, combined with the latest techniques in woodworking and composites.
