Henri Jeanneau’s passion and commitment to quality boat building began in 1957. From the first artisan-crafted runabout to today’s precision-manufactured sailboats, that passion and commitment is shared by the Bay Yacht Agency.

The Technology of Beauty
The strength of Jeanneau can be seen in the beauty of their boats. World-renowned designer and architects work with their in-house teams from the inception of each project and provide their expertise and innovative ideas. The result of this partnership: captivating and inspiring designs that stand the test of time.
A Jeanneau must be responsive, agile and fast. Performance encompasses not only speed but exceptional handling under power, smooth passage through heavy seas, confidence and control. Every experience onboard a Jeanneau is enhanced by their well balanced sail plans, modern hulls, high-end sails and quality deck hardware
Each new Jeanneau is comprehensively designed via the powerful CATIA design software. CATIA allows Jeanneau to design a better boat with more attention to detail in a shorter timeframe.
Research & Development
A specialized Research & Development Design facility at Jeanneau houses 130 engineering specialists. This facility is unique in the boat-building sector, providing R&D resources usually available only to large aeronautical and automobile companies.
The Engineering of Beauty
The Jeanneau Formula for success: Combine 50 years of practical boat building savoir-faire with the latest construction technologies. Invest in and continuously improve technologically advanced factories with ergonomic production lines, computerized processes and efficient logistical supply chains. Translate the efficiencies into lower costs and higher quality for the customer.
Superior composite technologies
20 years ago Jeanneau developed a closed moulding process called Prisma Process. This technological edge yields a higher-quality part with a lower weight, but also reduces airborne VOCs by 90% as compared with traditional GRP moulding, thus making it a much greener way to produce boats.
