Rhea Marine, a sum of added values for a top quality.
The story of Rhea Marine began in 1996 when its founder, B.Danglade, in association with Joubert Nivelts office, designed a boat for the modern yachtsmen who wanted to go sailing and fishing on an elegant, traditional but also comfortable boat with a minimum of maintenance.
The Rhea boats drew their inspiration from the traditional esthetic of the “coureauleurs“, small typical wooden boats which sailed on the French Atlantic Coast in the 60s, more precisely from the Sevre Niortaise to the Tremblade, as well as from the fishermens and oyster farmers experience.Who can design a seaman boat better than them?
This expertise can be perpetuated by following some strict traditional rules in the assembly and building techniques in order to offer top quality boats. Their vintage style is characterized by a flared bow and a tumblehome, and it reveals a perfect blend of modernity and with a true sense of marine vocation.BUILD ME A BOAT!
