The Jeanneau story begins more than 60 years ago in Les Hebiers, France. Henri Jeanneau, an aircraft and automobile enthusiast, discovered a new passion for motorboating. This passion led him to build his first wooden hull in 1957 to be part of the 6 Hours of Paris race. He finished in the first place, which made him dive even deeper into the field of boats. This is how a passion became a profession.
In 1958 the shipyard built its first fibreglass hull, an unconventional material and a technological breakthrough. They wanted to prove that fibreglass was a material that worked as well as wood. Their first models were the Sport polyester, Mirage and Prélude, making fibreglass the brand of the moment and the preferred choice of sailors.
In 1970 the best era for Jeanneau began. The popularity of sailing increased along with the production of boats. This same year, the brand launched one of its most popular models called the Sangria. It was a great success, selling around 3000 boats and securing a leading position in the market. In 1995 Jeanneau joined Bénéteau which, helped them grow faster and create Jeanneau America in the United States. In the 2000s, they expanded their boatbuilding business and created the world's largest boatbuilding yard of 40 hectares. Since then, the brand has been important for the powerboat market.
