All about Kelt brand
In 1976, Gilles Le Baud, two-time winner of the Course de l'Aurore – now called the Solitaire du Figaro – created his own shipyard. Based in Vannes, Kelt Marine produced over 4,000 sailing boats and thousands of motor launches up until 2009.
Kelt Marine quickly made a name for itself among the small sailing cruisers. In terms of small boats ranging mainly from 5.50 m to 11.20 m in length, Kelt yachts offer very good offshore features. Bought out several times by American and then French manufacturers, the shipyard broadened its motorboat knowhow and built top-of-the-range motorboats from the 1990s onwards. The production lines in Valais closed in 2009, after 35 years of creating and manufacturing models that are still popular today.
The Kelt Marine shipyard has made a name for itself with the seaworthy qualities of its yachts and the excellent distribution of their interior fittings. The company's rigid and rigid inflatable launches are also known for their high-performance hulls.
- The Kelt 7.6, voted Boat of the Year in 1980 and the Kelt 8.5, Boat of the Year in 1984, are still solid names in the houseboat arena even today.
- Among the open hulls, the White Shark series is appreciated by fishing and leisure enthusiasts as much for its sportiness as for its ease of sailing.
A remarkable challenge: in 35 years, the Kelt Marine shipyards have succeeded in becoming one of the benchmark manufacturers for both their sailboats and their motorboats.
