It isn’t very often you get to pass a milestone like this. Here at MW Marine, we’re proud to be making a part of Jeanneau’s storied history by celebrating our 10th anniversary with this illustrious company. In 2011 we were appointed the NSW agents for the company, and it’s an honour to work with a world leader in the boat building industry.
A Look Back at the Jeanneau Story
It all began back in 1957 when Henri Jeanneau began building his wooden-hulled race boat for the 6-hour long Paris Race- which he won. The next year Jeanneau began building the first fibreglass hull in their shipyard before launching his first production line powerboat – The Seabird, in 1960.
In their boatyard in Les Herbiers, France, they produced the classic Alize, Love Love, and Sangria Sailboats through the ’60s and ’70s and made history in 1976 when the Melody entered a single-handed trans-Atlantic race, proving that a production boat could cross the ocean.
This “4×4 of the seas”, as it was affectionately referred to back then, became known for its amazing seafaring abilities, and is now a standard for powerboats. In 1981 the Cap Camarat Niger 510 went on to take 1st place at the African Nayamey Bamako Rally. In 2nd and 3rd places, you guessed it two more Jeanneau boats.
MW Marine – A Legacy of Service
Matthew Willet founded MW Marine in 2010. His vision of a boutique brokerage has grown to become one of the larger dealers of Jeanneau’s in the Asia Pacific Region, winning awards for sales and service.
It’s our 10th Anniversary with Jeanneau and our marina has been privileged to know such growth and to have procured this alliance with a historic shipyard and boat manufacturer. It is surprising how quickly time flies when you have such a good thing going – but here we are, 10 years on and still working closely with the legendary service and quality workmanship Jeanneau is renowned for.
MW Marine is proud to be the boutique brokerage that brings these wonderfully elegant, exceptional vessels to our clients, and our Australian waters.
Jeanneau Where We Wanna Go?
With a relationship built on such a solid foundation as the history we share, MW Marine can offer customers the kind of support that only such a stable affiliation can bring. We can’t believe it’s our 10th Anniversary with Jeanneau but we sure are looking forward to celebrating another 10 years with this boat building icon.
