Tournier Marine spirit
Our philosophy is simple : after an experience in monohulls building (among one ULDB), we are now building multihulls since 25 years, and some of them have sailed three circumnavigations….that is to say more than 70 000 milles !
To day catamarans are “fashions” and we know that it’s an excellent travel boat… those from our yard are a good proof.
For objective reasons, the multihulls we build are :
Powerful : their sail area/weight ratio is higher than the average of the currently market
Strong : because we are experienced and we study the structure of finished elements, thus we know where efforts are transmitted and so we put reinforcements where it’s necessary, to avoid any bad surprise
Reliable : for same reasons, but also because we choose our standard equipment among wellknown suppliers
Comfort, Safety and Performances are the three words that sum up our boats
