The respected French luxury yacht builder, JFA Yachts, is proud to announce its silver sponsorship of ShowBoats Design Awards and Superyacht Design Symposium 2014. The company’s President, Frédéric JAOUEN, will have the honour to present the Naval Architecture Award – Motor Yachts Award.
Founded in 1993, JFA Yachts has always been in touch with innovative yacht projects. Today, the company represents an internationally recognised French shipyard.
Frédéric JAOUEN, its president, has, during all these years, managed to preserve personal relationships between the owners, the representative owners, and the yard.
JFA Yachts has also kept its human size and its family atmosphere. At JFA Yachts, “owners are building their boats”.
The versatility is an other strong point of the shipyard: sailing yachts – motor yachts – multihulls – yachts in steel, aluminium or composite including carbon, are showing JFA Yachts as the only shipyard in Europe able to answer at a such diversity. Its facilities allow JFA Yachts to build or refit superyacht projects up to 60 metres.
With permanent relations with naval architects and interior designers all around the world, JFA Yachts is in contact with renowned offices.
Today JFA Yachts is convinced that sailing yachts and multihulls from 80 to 150’ will be more and more present in the future. It is only the beginning of the “green yachts” generation.
Ecological, fast, stable and comfortable: a new generation of multihulls looms up on the horizon.
The Long Island 85 yacht – a Marc Lombard design – confirms this orientation. Launched this next spring, she will charm with her spaces and her simplicity. The range of the Long Island will be declined in several sizes, and we are yet speaking of the Long Island 100 yacht.
Another project is important for JFA Yachts: a new generation of Explorer Vessels.
Developed in collaboration with naval architect Bill Dixon, the new 164’ JFA motor yacht shows the Dixon Yacht Design’s vision of a modern Explorer Vessel. A lot of work has been done to ensure she is an energy efficient yacht with a great deal of automony. Aluminium was the choosen build material because of the impact on weight and maintenance. This contemporary Explorer Vessel will measure less than 500 GT.
