Neptune

neptune boat brand logo - band of boats

Neptune shipyards, better known as SMAP Neptune, had workshops in Domazan, in the Gard, between Nimes and Avignon. In the 1970s, the shipyard built boats based on drawings by Daniel Tortarolo and the Fauroux group.

 

One of the emblematic models of the Neptune shipyard was the Neptune Micro 5.50, designed by Fauroux and which built up a good reputation in the Micro Class. Despite its age, it is still regularly seen in prize lists. The Micro Class was created in 1977 by the magazine "Bateaux", in order to make light, easily transportable and inexpensive boats compete together in real time.

 

Micros are rarely built in France today, but regattas are still very competitive and exciting, and a used Micro 5.50 is a great way to compete without breaking the bank. A well-prepared hull, modernised rigging and high-performance sails result in a boat capable of bringing home wins.

 

The Neptune 625 also has a lot to offer, as do the Trident 80 and 99. The Trident 80 was a great success with almost 600 units built at a time when competition was hot in this niche area for cruisers under 8 meters. SMAP Neptune closed its doors in the 1980s, but its boats still perform well!

  • Preferred uses: Fishing? Coastal sailing? River cruising? Watersports?
