Artisan crafted in Brittany France using traditional methods and wood from local sustainable forests, this spectacular fully seaworthy sailing boat 400 is a beautiful keepsake for any child, or for those who simply love boats.
Toy boat atelier since 1946 by Francis Tirot, Bateaux Tirot is now run by his grandson Nicolas and is one of the last manufacturers to make their boats entirely in France. It is a member of the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company) for its traditional skills and craftsmanship, which have been passed down for three generations. Other brands in this class include Hermes, Chanel and Christian Dior.
With its dolphin motif, sailing boat 400 is totally seaworthy. Nicolas and his family have unique knowledge in their varnishing techniques and in making a perfectly hollowed-out and decked hull. A system of an artificial air bubble provides the most realistic sea-worthiness possible, the boats are then sanded by hand.
Sailing boat 400 with its dolphin motif represents quality, timelessness and tradition at a price that is outstanding for its value. It is a perfect gift for children, teens and mature boat lovers and can be passed down from generation to generation.
