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


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.


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.
