History

 
    
1929-1930

 André Bénéteau builds "Le Jeannot" and, in 1930, symbolizing the speed that he wants to give his boats, he christens it "Poursuivante" or Pursuer.

     
 
1945-1950

Just after the war, the entire fishing fleet needs to be rebuilt. Determined to take his boats forwards, André creates "bridges" fitted with a helm.

     
 
1955

In response to the region's new fishing methods, "l’Antigone" is the first boat created for tuna fishing with live bait, with a forecastle for storing the freshly caught sardines.
