Our boats have a soul

A lifetime devoted to building extraordinary boats, that was the destiny of Henri Wauquiez, who gave his name to our workshop in 1965. For a boat to qualify as a Wauquiez there is no need to pile on the superlatives. A single word is enough to capture the essence built into each of our yachts: quality. We have not chosen the path towards industrialisation, we prefer to let our know-how flow freely by offering you original, authentic boats. Boats that are safe, performing and comfortable for all those whose lives are marked by a passion for the sea.

Making exceptional journeys

Aboard a Wauquiez, the spectacle of the sea is never-ending. Sitting or standing in the cabin, you can contemplate it as readily as if you were on deck. At the helm, the feeling of power grows increasingly intense over the miles. Manoeuvres are made easy with the self-tacking jib, high quality fittings and equipment strengthen your confidence. Each sail turns into a unique journey.

The art and the substance

The sense of quality in a boat depends upon the choice of materials used and the standard of their finish. Wauquiez is one of the few boat makers still to have its own carpentry shop. The teak – meticulously selected – is worked to measure and laid plank by plank by our carpenters to ensure the quality that you can expect. The upholstery fabrics and leathers meet the same standards, with every detail contributing to the success of the whole.

Designed for your comfort

If our boats are, above all, designed for navigation, their success depends as much on their performance in the realm of comfort. Comfortable, whether sailing calm seas or in rough weather, with ease in manoeuvring through the incorporation of the most advanced materials. And, the reassuring knowledge that you are aboard a Wauquiez also arises from an emphasis on interior comfort, with luminous cabins, comfortable seating and beds, and most cabins equipped with bathroom.
