The story of Rhea Marine began in 1996 when its founder, B.Danglade, in association with Joubert Nivelt’s office,
designed a boat for the modern yachtsmen who wanted to go sailing and fishing on an elegant, traditional but also
comfortable boat with a minimum of maintenance.
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.
