Luxury yacht builder JFA Yachts is a French manufacturer of mono- and multihull power and sailing superyachts from 24 to 46 metres in length. JFA’s shipyard is located in the port of Concarneau in Brittany on France’s Atlantic coast.
History of JFA Yachts
Luxury yacht builder JFA was founded in 1993 by Frédéric Jaouen and Frédéric Breuilly to build the 22-metre aluminium sloop Kermor. Although quickly established as a new yacht builder, JFA also soon entered the refit business. The shipyard has renovated many well-known luxury yachts, including the 38-metre superyacht Jaguar, the 33-metre Amadeus, the 30-metre maxi cat Mashua Bluu, and the 36-metre, two-masted schooner Magistral.
Notable JFA Yachts
Luxury superyacht builder JFA Yachts has produced numerous notable yacht designs, including WindQuest, a fast-cruising, aluminium Long Island 25.91-metres catamaran designed by Marc Lombard; a 35-metre power catamaran concept designed in collaboration with Peugeot Design lab, and a new 50-metre explorer vessel developed with naval architect Bill Dixon.
Among superyacht builder JFA Yachts’ current projects is an aluminium-hulled 44-metre explorer yacht developed by Dixon Yacht Design, and a 40-metre fast cruising luxury sailing superyacht, developed in conjunction with naval architect Owen Clarke.
