Marsaudon Composites was founded in 1999 by Samuel Marsaudon, and the multihull specialist set up shop in 2001 in the former submarine base in Lorient.
Damien Caillau, Chairman and CEO of Marsaudon Composites since 2018 set himself the objective of turning this artisanal shipyard into a recognized factory. Marsaudon Composites had a turnover of €4 to 5 million in 2018 compared to a projected turnover of around €11 million in 2023. Six boats are under contract for build, one of which has been delivered.
The company was bought by the Grand Large Yachting Group in 2023 and will form part of that group along with sister companies Outremer, Gunboat and Garcia.
The three big naves are ample room for manufacturing large modules, with an oven for items up to 30 m long by 14 m wide.
Initially Marsaudon focused on models and molds for offshore racing boats, and then evolved into the construction of their own complete boats.
IDEC II, on which Francis Joyon holds the record for the solo circumnavigation, is from the Lorient shipyard. Six and a half months after the launch, Francis JOYON and IDEC II beat the Round the World Record single handed in 57 days, 13 hours, 23 minutes and 6 seconds.
