Henri Jeanneau’s passion and commitment to quality boat building began in 1957.
From the first artisan-crafted runabout to today’s precision-manufactured sail and power boats, that passion and commitment is now shared by our 2500 employees and our network of over 300 distributors world-wide.
Our customers help drive the innovation and quality that are the hallmarks of Jeanneau. As experienced sailors, their input enables our design and production teams to quickly implement new ideas and enhance proven ones.
The result, as you’ll see, is a way of creating boats of extraordinary quality, value and timeless beauty.
The strength of Jeanneau can be seen in the beauty of our boats. World-renowned designers and architects work with our 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 our well-balanced sail plans, modern hulls, high-end sails and quality deck hardware.
A specialized Research & 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.
Our total quality control system tracks a product through the entire production process and beyond. From laboratory tests of each batch of resin to tank testing to customer satisfaction questionnaires and frequent supplier reviews, we continually seek ways to improve our boats.
Quality starts with the best materials and components. Aboard a Jeanneau you will find equipment from the leaders in each field, because we only use suppliers that share our commitment to quality control and product excellence. These premium suppliers also help ensure servicing of your boat’s components world-wide.
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 logistic supply chains. Translate the efficencies into lower costs and higher quality for the customer.
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.
Rich interior woodworking has always been a signature of Jeanneau quality. Using fine quality hardwoods and marine composites, computerized varnishing machines and CNC routers provide precision parts finished to industrial tolerances. These are then individually assembled with the experienced eye and hand of the craftsman.
Jeanneau has an established and professional distributor network in 50 countries, experienced and regularly trained on the Jeanneau product line and new models. Distributors are aided by an innovative intranet program to facilitate the delivery of spare parts in the shortest time. In addition, each of these distributors is prepared to advise our clients and provide them with the exemplary service they should expect from a major boat builder.
The Jeanneau experience is unique. No other builder can offer the same level of cutting-edge design, superior finish, performance and customer satisfaction – all in a competitively priced package.
