Search for a buyer for Be Boat yachts

The Be Boat shipyard is looking for a buyer. One year after the sudden death of its founder Erwan Boisecq on June 8, 2019, his widow, Audrey Boisecq has officially put the neo-classical sailing shipyard, based in Arradon, on the Gulf of Morbihan, up for sale. The transaction, initially blocked by the succession, is now possible. The assets put up for sale are as follows:

  • the complete vessel BE 6.4 ready to sail, if not sold separately before the sale of the company
  • the already built components of EB 6.0 No. 2
  • the moulds of the OE 6.4 and OE 6.0
  • all machines and tools
  • consumables
  • the plans and documents necessary for the realization of the units already built (excluding architectural intellectual property)
  • the name "BE BOAT", its website and access to related social networks

" The walls of the building site in Arradon (Editor's note: 350 m² surface area) are not for sale. On the other hand, they can be rented to the buyer. The objective is to keep the building site going "says Audrey Boisecq.

Boats with a strong image

The conditions for continuing the Beboat story seem to be in place. Although the employee working with Erwan Boisecq is currently working on other projects, contacts are continuing with him and with the architect of BE 6.4, Thomas Jullien. Since the creation of Be Boat in 2014, the yard's yachts have been highly regarded. After the first cat-boat, the BE 6.4 has a sloop version 2 with bowsprit, the first unit belonging to the shipyard being part of the sale. The reputation doing its job, Be Boat then builds a neo-classical 10-metre sailing boat in one-off to the design of naval architect Juan Kouyoumdjian, then launches the BE 6.0 " Since June 2019, I have already received a number of requests which I have forwarded to the architect Thomas Jullien "says Audrey Boisecq, confirming the interest of boaters.

Let's hope that despite the difficult context that the yachting market will face, Be Boat finds a buyer to continue the promising story started in 2014.
