Trade a Boat magazine goes on a factory tour with Prestige.

Earlier this year an Australian journalist had the opportunity to fly to France to attend the launch of the magnificent Prestige 550. Whilst he was there, Patrick Bollen was taken on a tour of the manufacturing complex. He came away quite impressed… “The first sighting of this massive complex left me astonished, to say the least. I have never seen anything like it in recreational boat building.”

“Teams of workers — Jeanneau employs 1200 staff, technicians, craftsmen, designers, shipwrights, engineers and electricians — follow the boat from moulding to finished product. Detail is everything and quality control is stringently measured from moulding to completion.”
