Jeanneau: A Distinctive Brand

Henri Jeanneau’s passion and commitment to quality boat building began in 1957. From the first artisan-crafted runabout to today’s precision-manufactured sailboats and powerboats – that passion and commitment is shared by Atlantic Cruising Yachts.


The Technology of Beauty

World-renowned designer and architects work with their 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 on board a Jeanneau is enhanced by their well-balanced sail plans, modern hulls, high-end sails, and quality deck hardware.


Each new Jeanneau sailboat is comprehensively designed via the powerful CATIA design software. CATIA allows Jeanneau to design a better yacht with more attention to detail in a shorter timeframe.

Research & Development

A specialized Research & Development 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.


The Engineering of Beauty

Invest in and continuously improve technologically advanced factories with ergonomic production lines, computerized processes, and efficient logistical supply chains. Translate the efficiencies into lower costs and higher quality for the customer.

Superior Composite Technologies

20 years ago, Jeanneau developed a closed molding 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 molding, thus making it a much greener way to produce boats.



The Timelessness of Beauty

Our total quality control systems 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 review, we continually seek ways to improve our boats.

Aboard a Jeanneau you will find equipment from the leaders in each field, because we only use suppliers that share our commitment to qualify control and product excellence. These premium suppliers also help ensure servicing of your boat’s components world-wide.


Peace of mind is part of the Jeanneau experience, which is why safety is standard. They conduct extensive finite element analysis of their structural systems, design secure handholds throughout, utilize large hatches that double as emergency egress routes, and only use the highest quality deck fittings. This helps create the legendary Jeanneau seaworthiness that comes from 50 years of experience in building offshore boats.

ISO 9001

As an ISO 9001 company, the Jeanneau’s building process is certified to the highest international standards. Each new yacht is thoroughly tested throughout the building process and each receives additional tank testing where all systems are put through their paces.

International Standards

All Jeanneau boats carry the CE certification which ensures strict standards for stability, safety and structure. In addition, all boats 12m and over are all certified by the Bureau Veritas, an independent engineering certification. This certification includes every part of the conception and building process.
