Company Philosophy and Technology
The experience gained in building offshore racing sailboats provides Marée Haute with the know-how to design and build performance cruisers that are roomy and comfortable in coastal cruising and at the same time able to sail in offshore conditions, alone or with a crew.
Our small team of around a dozen professionals, all passionate about boats and technology, are dedicated to designing racing and fast cruisers meeting the following exacting standards:
- Boats which are both light and reliable through the use of advanced technology (infusion build, careful choice of materials …)
- Boats which are ergonomic and thoughtfully designed, with sleek and modern lines, and organized in simple, functional sea-proven layouts.
- Boats that offer safety and stability at sea through carefully balanced sail plans, and excellent tracking under autopilot through the use of broad hull designs and double rudders.
- Boats that are responsive and fun at the helm, with the ability to be both simple to use and extremely precise in their feedback and handling.
At Marée Haute we control the entire building process, without recourse to subcontracting. We strive to source a large portion of our materials in the vicinity of our production site in order to keep the transport impact to a minimum. Marée Haute sailboats are designed and built with only one aim: to bring maximum satisfaction to our customers.
Our service at Marée Haute is to help you define step by step your needs and wishes, to formalize with you the specifications of your future boat, and to bring tailored solutions to your sailboat from the design stage all the way to delivery. We will also be pleased to accompany you at the various stages of your boat’s life, be it with maintenance, follow-up or advice.
« We build your passion » is not just a slogan. Our passion as boat builders is to deliver to you a sailboat tailored to your needs and wishes, a sailboat that will bring you joy in family or single handed sailing, in coastal or offshore conditions, safely, reliably, with ease of use and performance.
We wish to thank our customers, suppliers and partners for the 10 years of work and passion that we have shared together.
