traditional construction of neoclassical boats
It all began when Franck Roy, a machinery enthusiast and vintage car restorer, decided to train as a marine carpenter in Douarnenez: he then spent more than ten years working at Sysba Marine and Latitude 46. In 1998 he decided to create his own shipyard: Construction Navale Franck Roy (Franck Roy Shipbuilding).
Located first in L’Houmeau, Marans and then Marsilly near La Rochelle, the shipyard continued growing and saw more than 200 boats leave its moulds. Twenty years of work later, the company director took the difficult decision to sell his shipyard to move closer to his native Brittany and devote himself to passing on his skills by becoming a trainer. At the end of 2019, the shipyard was bought by Romuald Tuffery, a passionate young entrepreneur from Vendée, who wants to modernise processes and develop international sales but above all, preserve the know-how and DNA that define the Franck Roy Shipyard, namely quality, customisation and strong customer relations. The founder is always on-hand to support the shipyard, so Romuald and his team benefit from an outstanding consultant for their projects.
