Duvoisin nautique & sports, the history

Passionate about dinghies, we started competing in the Fireball series in the early 1980s. We soon realised that technology was very important and in 1981 we built our first boat. After a few models built entirely in wood, we launched our first composite model in 1988.

Since then, we have built about 160 boats using state-of-the-art technologies such as the carbon-epoxy honeycomb sandwich.

Over the years, we have specialised in light sailing (dinghies) and catamarans to offer a complete range from Optimists to the latest foil models

We also offer other watercraft such as kayaks including Hobie pedal boats (with MirageDrive propulsion) and stand-up paddles (SUP).

We are able to build, but we are also able to do all kinds of repairs or refurbishments. Our know-how also allows us to repair high-end carbon bikes.

In our shop you will find a wide range of fittings, clothing, electronics and all the necessary equipment to maintain your boat.

October 2021, we take over the Auvernier boatyard. From now on, we will be able to maintain all types of boats, from Optimist to ballast, without forgetting motorboats, rowing boats or other types of boats.
