Knowledge, experience, tradition and passion of naval heritage is what makes Rhea Marine, a small shipyard situated in La Rochelle, so unique. The yard builds with talented hands elegant motor boats that you can personalize as you please.


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 60’s, more precisely from the Sevre Niortaise to the Tremblade, as well as from the fishermen’s and oyster farmer’s experience. Who can design a seaman boat better than them?


This expertise can be perpetuated by following some strict traditional rules in the assemblyand 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.
